Special Olympics Nevada (SONV) is proud to honor teachers who have gone above and beyond for their students and have encouraged an environment of inclusion and acceptance throughout their respective school communities. The selected teacher was nominated by Schools Partnership Program coordinators for the fall season. SONV recognizes the contributions of partnering special education, adapted physical education (APE) and other teachers and administrators for their outstanding efforts in impacting the lives of students with intellectual disabilities.
