To Karen Dingler, nouns, verbs and adjectives are more than just words.
They’re ingredients that allow you to go from one place to another – opening up a world you’ve never seen before.
Dingler tries to share that passion with her students in hopes they’ll become lifelong readers. And, apparently, she’s doing a good job.
Dingler, an English teacher at Buford Middle School, is the districtwide winner of the 2009 Celebrate Great Teaching award. It’s the highest honor the Lancaster County School District gives to its educators.
