Chasmyn Lindeman-Thimesch, a fifth-grade teacher at Cloud Elementary, has been named a recipient of the 2019 Kansas Horizon Award from the Kansas Department of Education. The Kansas Horizon Award recognizes teachers who do an exemplary job during their first year of teaching. Lindeman-Thimesch was surprised at her school by a call from Kansas Commissioner of Education Dr. Randy Watson.
Lindeman-Thimesch is among 32 teachers across the state to receive the award. As a recipient, she will join the Kansas Exemplary Educators Network (KEEN). KEEN is a network of educators from across the state, allowing teachers to share ideas with other teachers and to participate in a number of professional development programs.
Lindeman-Thimesch, along with the other state recipients, will be recognized during the KEEN State Education Conference in February.
