Oklahoma Teacher Honored With National Award

Posted: Updated:

A teacher at a small school in southern Oklahoma has been named the 2011 recipient of the Shell Science Teaching Award.

Susie Stevens Edens is a Science teacher at Latta High School, located in Ada. She was presented the award by the National Science Teachers Association at the National Conference on Science Education earlier this month in San Francisco.

"Susie Stevens Edens represents the best and brightest in science education," said Dr. Francis Eberle, Executive Director, NSTA. "We offer our congratulations and thanks to Mrs. Edens for her lifelong commitment to science education and for her innovative and creative approach to teaching our students science."

Edens has been an educator for more than thirty years. She's a graduate of Oklahoma State University and teaches Biology, Biotechnology, Anatomy/Physiology and Chemistry.

This award is one of several she has received over the years, including the 2002 Radio Shack National Teacher Award, the 2002 Oklahoma Biology Teacher of the Year and the 2006 USA Today All Teacher Team. She was also one of five international finalists for the 2002 Intel Excellence in Teaching Award.
