We already know that the teachers in Texas YG are the best educators in the state. However, it is always exciting to see our teachers receive recognition elsewhere. Armin Salek, the club advisor at Akins High School, is a standout teacher in the Austin District and successfully led two judicial teams to 5th and 2nd place at the 2020 State Conference. Salek is also a renowned teacher outside of YG. In April, Austin ISD named Salek Teacher of the Year for 2020. In addition, Salek was recently awarded the Rather Prize, an award given to the student, teacher, or administrator with the best idea on how to improve education in Texas. You can watch a video here and here to learn more about the Rather Prize and Salek’s ideas to improve education.

Congratulations to Salek on all of your achievements! We are lucky to have you as a member of the Texas YG family!
