Keystone Oaks High School Family and Consumer Science Teacher Mrs. Emily Brill has been named the 2022 Teacher of the Year by the Pennsylvania Association of Family and Consumer Sciences, Inc.
This award identifies and recognizes outstanding educational program methods, techniques, and activities that provide the stimulus for, and give visibility to, FCS education. At Keystone Oaks High School, Mrs. Brill oversees the child development courses, which include a hands-on nursery school program, while also teaching various culinary arts, nutrition and personal finance courses.
"Mrs. Brill is a dedicated teacher who works to ensure that her students are engaged in real-world experiences through family and consumer science courses," said High School Principal Mr. Linnert. "Whether she's leading students through a new recipe or baking technique, overseeing their role as instructors in the nursery school program, or teaching students financial literacy skills, Mrs. Brill strives to provide her students with a foundation that will benefit them now and in the future. She is certainly deserving of this award and we thank PAFCS for recognizing her hard work and commitment to her students and to FCS education."
Mrs. Brill will be recognized at the PAFCS 2022 Annual Conference Awards event in April.
