Local teacher wins national award


Students and staff surprised a hard-working science teacher at Rockford Christian with a national award.

Mrs. Rohl teaches middle school science. She was presented the Teacher of the Year award through the Challenger Center for Space Science Education. Rohl has been teaching science at Rockford Christian for 12 years.

"A lot of kids think school is not that much fun and I think that they can find joy in science and know that it is a hands-on activity that can cause them to learn and spark their interest a little bit." said Rohl.

Rohl was one of five people in the country to receive the honor.
