PELLSTON TEACHER IS REGIONAL WINNER IN TEACHER OF THE YEAR PROGRAM

 PELLSTON TEACHER IS REGIONAL WINNER
 IN TEACHER OF THE YEAR PROGRAM
 PELLSTON, Mich., June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Mark Bryan, a computer and business teacher at Pellston Public School, is one of 16 regional winners in the nationwide "Teacher of the Year" competition sponsored by IBM and Technology & Learning Magazine.
 Bryan was selected as a regional winner from some 150 state semifinalists competing for the national honor. The Teacher of the Year will be chosen from the 16 regional winners and announced in the fall of 1992.
 As a regional winner, Bryan will receive an IBM Personal System/2 Model 25 computer, an IBM Proprinter, an assortment of IBM courseware, and will be profiled in Technology & Learning Magazine.
 Now in its fifth year, the IBM/Technology & Learning Magazine competition recognizes kindergarten through 12th grade teachers who use classroom technology to motivate children and revitalize the learning process.
 Computer students in Bryan's class volunteered to teach the teachers in multimedia, word processing and "read, write and publish" computer in-services. The staff has gained valuable knowledge, and students are taking pride in teaching the teachers. Teacher enrollment and student involvement have proven as exciting as the success of the in-services themselves.
 A panel made up of educators selected by Technology & Learning Magazine chose the winners from nominations received from school systems nationwide.
 Since the program was initiated in 1988, more than 200 teachers from across the country have been honored for their innovative teaching methods and for programs of curriculum enrichment.
 The national Teacher of the Year winner will receive for his or her school a network of computers, consisting of 20 IBM Personal System/2 Model 25 computers, an IBM PS/2 Model 80 file server, four IBM Proprinters and a library of IBM courseware.
 The competition is open to all teachers who utilize classroom technology, regardless of the type of systems or courseware used.
