The following news release was sent by the Glen Rock Public Schools System.
A new member of the teaching staff at Glen Rock High School has been awarded both a scholarship and grant from the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) Educational Foundation.
Oren Levi, who joined the Science Department as a first-year physics teacher, is the recipient of a $5,000 AFCEA STEM Teacher Scholarship, along with a Teaching Tools grant for each of the next three years that he continues teaching a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) subject.
The grant can be used to fund hardware and software, other classroom tools, field trips, STEM-focused clubs and other activities. The scholarship program is awarded over a three-year period to winners who have earned their degrees and are teaching a STEM subject in a U.S. middle or high school.
Levi earned both his bachelor’s of science degree in physics and master’s in physics education from Rutgers University.
