The October Teacher of the Month winner is Soo Han, an orchestra teacher at Carmel High School. He was nominated by student Sarah Tinaphong. As a reward, Sarah won a pizza party for her class, and Han won a $50 gift card from Teacher of the Month sponsor Market District.

Here is Sarah’s winning essay:

My orchestra teacher, Soo Han, is the definition of a true educator. Without the immense dedication and long hours that he puts into our school’s orchestra program, we would be nowhere near where we are today. In the past year alone, the orchestra program has had tremendous achievements, from performing in the prestigious Midwest Clinic in Chicago to St. Stephen’s Cathedral and Esterházy Palace in Vienna, Austria. Also, last year, Mr. Han introduced the United Sound club at our school, making our orchestra one of the first programs in the country to teach special needs students to play musical instruments.
