North Teacher Recognized with Yale Educator Award
Chad Stauber Soik, a Language Arts teacher at North High School, has been recognized by the Yale Office of Undergraduate Admissions as a recipient of the 2013 Yale Educator Award. The Yale Educator Recognition Program recognizes outstanding educators from around the world who support and inspire their students to perform at high levels and to achieve excellence. Matriculating students are invited to nominate high school educators, and a committee of Yale admissions officers reviews each nomination individually and designates recipients. Mr. Soik was nominated by his former student Josh Feng, who is attending Yale University this fall. Mr. Soik was Josh’s debate coach for three years and also taught Josh in an Honor Humanities course last school year. Mr. Soik spoke very highly of Josh as a student in his Humanities course, saying the students in the class were “brilliant, engaged, and ambitious citizens of the world in the making.” Mr. Soik went on to say that Josh was an excellent writer and while he will take some credit for those skills, “more credit belongs to Josh and his parents.” The Sheboygan Area School District is proud to congratulate Mr. Soik on his recognition. He was the only teacher in Wisconsin to receive this prestigious award. Congratulations, Mr. Soik!
