Begich Minute: Happy Teacher Appreciation Week
Begich joins 7th grade teacher Scott Kluever to thank teachers
For Teacher Appreciation Week, U.S. Sen. Mark Begich is joined by Scott Kluever in this week’s Begich Minute to thank teachers in Alaska and across the country for their hard work educating America’s youth. Kluever is an Eienstein Education Fellow in Begich’s Washington D.C. office and a Begich Middle School 7th grade science teacher.
Kluever has been on leave from Begich Middle School in Anchorage for the last year to assist Begich and his staff with education issues. He was once named the Alaska Earth Science Teacher of the Year by the Alaska Geological Society as well as Teacher of the Year by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists. He was also named an Outstanding Educator/Role Model in 2003/04 by the Alaska Education Association. He heads back to Anchorage this summer to resume his post at Begich Middle School.
