The Levittown School District is pleased to announce that Kristen Stritzl, an English teacher at Division Avenue, was selected as a University of Chicago Outstanding Educator Award winner. Stritzl was nominated by former student and 2016 valedictorian Jessica Vasseghi upon enrolling in the University of Chicago.
“Our students frequently tell us that they were influenced by a particular high school educator, someone who challenged them intellectually for the first time, opened new vistas and realms of discovery, or channeled their private interests into productive paths for intellectual growths,” said James G. Nondorf, University of Chicago vice president of enrollment.
Stritzl currently teaches English 9, Advanced Placement (AP) Literature, and the district’s new AP Capstone Program. The Levittown School District and Division Avenue High School community congratulates Stritzl on this outstanding accomplishment.
