Tyson Lazzaro was nominated by an anonymous student.
Mr. Lazzaro has taught at the International School of Beaverton since it opened and is highly respected by both students and staff. Although he has only been the nominator's teacher for a year, he has already made a significant impact on her academics.
Mr. Lazzaro is open to suggestions on how to improve his class, and he breaks down assignments to help students better understand the material.
"He has efficiently displayed different perspectives and ways to analyze information to accommodate different types of learning," the nominator said. "He has not only been one of the most effective teachers I have ever had, but he also welcomes every new student into our school community and understands the pressures that students face at home and at school."
