Michael Sinclair, a physics teacher at the Kalamazoo Area Math and Science Center and teacher in the Notre Dame QuarkNet program, has received a Kennedy Center/Stephen Sondheim Inspirational Teacher Award for 2013.
The Kennedy Center/Stephen Sondheim Inspirational Teacher Award is awarded to seven teachers nationally every year, and comes with a $10,000 cash reward. Sinclair says he cannot imagine being anything other than a teacher. “I choose to be a teacher because I am passionate about science and mathematics, love the daily intellectual interplay with students, revel in the brilliance of young people, and embrace the challenge of educating for the future.”
