2013 Teacher of the Year
ATLANTA—High school teacher Jeff Charbonneau is a man on a mission. He wants to make chemistry and physics and engineering—the “hard” sciences he teaches at Zillah High School in Zillah, Wash.—more accessible and more engaging for students. He does that by creating interactive learning experiences, like the Zillah Robot Challenge, to help students learn and develop confidence in their abilities.

This National Board Certified Teacher and 2013 National Teacher of the Year spoke today to nearly 9,000 fellow educators attending the National Education Association’s annual Representative Assembly at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
