Three Citrus Springs Middle teachers receive national award

CITRUS SPRINGS -- A team of three Citrus Springs Middle School teachers, Karen Stofcheck, Melony Siegendorf and Carla Eschen, have received a Time Warner Cable National Teacher Award for their entry, Nutrition Mission Inc.

The teachers used programming from the Learning Channel/Discovery Networks and Arts and Entertainment for the project.

Nutrition Mission is a student-run business which provides teachers with healthy snacks when they get the munchies. The students bill teachers, count money, keep spread sheets and stock the snack supply. The business was advertised through the school's TV program.

Time Warner recognizes educators who utilize cable television in their classrooms in imaginative, productive ways.

The teachers will receive a $1,000 grant and are invited to Washington, D.C., on June 5 for recognition, along with other innovative teachers.
