HAVRE DE GRACE, Md. - Havre de Grace Elementary School teacher Thomas Dennison was awarded with the Milken Educator award.
Dennison is unconventional in his teaching style and techniques.
“I think Mr. Dennison is very unconventional. He really looks at the heart of his students and understands where they’re coming from," principal Ronald Wooden said.
He said he's a proponent of reaching each and every one of his students. He stresses individuality and that's what drives him.
“I think that's more of what our world needs, is individuality” he said. “To be honest, I got this so I can spread some of what God has put in my heart and the way we can teach kids and love kids and take care of kids.”
