ISD 622 educator wins Teacher of the Year Award


Oakdale Elementary School teacher Kathy Lukin is recipient of The Arc Minnesota’s Teacher of the Year Award, honoring an outstanding teacher who has demonstrated excellence in educating and including students with intellectual or developmental disabilities. (Linda Baumeister/Review)

Kathy Lukin holds her students to high standards. She does not pity or coddle the children who come into her classroom every day. She puts in extra hours before school and on the weekends to create new learning opportunities for her students. She advocates for more inclusiveness and support for her kids.
While these are strategies many teachers employ to help their students learn, Lukin is also faced with the challenge of teaching special education students, many of whom have severe disabilities.
