Kimberly Chase is Awarded for Excellence in Teaching Literature

Kimberly Chase from Sandia High School was awarded the 2010 Nancy Thomas Harris Award for Excellence in Teaching Literature by the Albuquerque Community Foundation. The annual award honors an APS teacher who demonstrates a love for and quality in teaching high school language arts.

“Modern fiction is my favorite genre because I love losing myself in another world. Reading it forces me into a student’s role as I try to assess character motivation and plot while appreciating the author’s use of language,” said Chase, who received a $2,500 cash award.

The Nancy Thompson Harris Fund was established in 1997 in memory of Nancy Thompson Harris, a senior and honors English teacher at Sandia High.
