FHS Teacher Honored as Education Appreciation Award Winner

The Lubbock Chamber of Commerce honored Frenship High School English teacher Connie Pfanmiller for her outstanding service to education by presenting her with the 2015 Educator Appreciation Award.

The award presentation took place during the Chamber’s Educator Appreciation Reception on Wednesday, December 2. Pfanmiller was one of 12 educators from across Lubbock County who was recognized.

Pfanmiller has dedicated 22 years of service to education, all at Frenship High School. She teaches both on-level and Advanced Placement English III classes. Her classroom is described as hands-on with much discussion and lively activity.

“Students are expected to take charge of their learning with me as a guide,” Pfanmiller said. “My goal is to help students dig deep and become critical thinkers, skilled writers, and better human beings. Energetic, dedicated, and high expectations all describe me as an English teacher.”

The Chamber supports the educational efforts of the local schools and the educators who work diligently to serve our students and community. The Educator Appreciation Award honors and celebrates these accomplishments. The educators were selected by the students of the 2014-2015 New Century Leadership class.
