Congratulations to Hinkley High School Restorative Justice Coordinator Anna Bicknase for earning the Jared Polis Foundation's 2017 Teacher Recognition Award! She is one of only 10 honorees in the state.
The award recognizes Bicknase for demonstrating highly-effective, results-oriented teaching and for her undying compassion and dedication to students. Hinkley TOSA Thomas Velazquez nominated Bicknase for always going above and beyond her call of duty.
Bicknase was showered with awards from the foundation, including a $1,000 discretionary award, a $500 technology award, a $1,000 teacher-directed school grant and the iconic Jared Polis Foundation crystal apple.
In Aurora Public Schools, we believe student achievement and growth are driven by highly-effective and respected staff. We are thankful to have Bicknase on our team.
