Westfield High School business teacher Becky Sondgeroth was honored by the Indiana Business Educators Association with the Secondary School Teacher of the Year award.
Sondgeroth teaches accounting and is the DECA sponsor. She serves on the board of directors of the Mental Health Association in Marion County and is the treasurer and a board member of Meals on Wheels.
Sondgeroth was nominated for the award by WHS Principal Stacy McGuire and fellow WHS business teacher Lindsay Forrest.
“Becky is an integral part of our business department at WHS and gives her time, energy, and guidance freely to students,” Forrest wrote in her nomination of Sondgeroth. “She not only focuses on student academic achievement, but also on character development. Her experience and expertise make her a highly effective teacher. Where some teacher goals are for their class to earn better test scores, Becky’s focus is on what is truly in the best interest of the student.”
