Brevard Biology Teacher Wins National Prize
Ms. Emily Torlak, a biology teacher at Eau Gallie High School in Brevard County, was recently named the winner of the Entomological Society of America’s President’s Prize for Outstanding Achievement in Secondary Education. The award recognizes educators who have gone beyond traditional teaching methods by using insects as educational tools to teach science. Ms. Torlak will receive a donation to purchase teaching materials to expand the use of insects as teaching tools, travel expenses to present a paper or poster on the use of insects in educational programs at her choice of peer professional venue, and an opportunity to attend the Entomological Society of America’s annual meeting in December.
