Matthew Fash, a social studies teacher at Lenape Middle School, has been named Bucks County Teacher of the Year.
The announcement was made last night (April 20) by Inspire Federal Credit Union, which sponsors the program.
Fash and Michael Zweig, a third-grade teacher at Pine Run Elementary School, were among the three finalists for the award from a pool of 250 Bucks County teachers who were nominated.
CB Social Studies Curriculum Supervisor Scott Berger said: "Matt is an outstanding teacher who makes each day special for his students in the classroom. He is involved with many activities outside of the classroom including CB History Corp Club Advisor, softball coach, Lenape Idol Chair, and school store coordinator."
A graduate of Central Bucks High School South and Muhlenberg College, Fash was awarded $2,000 personally and $500 for his school.
