Phoebe Hearst’s Mr. Peter Goul Wins Outstanding Educator Award

e-Connections Post Phoebe Hearst

Congratulations to Peter Goul, 5th grade teacher at Phoebe Hearst Elementary who has been selected for the University of Chicago’s Outstanding Educator Award. 

Each year, first-year students at the University nominate a teacher who “has influenced them, challenged them or helped them along the path toward intellectual growth.” 

Hundreds of students send in letters to the University of Chicago Admissions Office about the educators who have inspired them, taught them to re-imagine texts, or think beyond the borders of the classroom in pursuit of their own education. The University of Chicago has administered the awards program for more than 30 years and commended the schools that “foster and support such outstanding individuals.”
