We all have stories of great teachers and how they changed our lives. One of our teachers here, Dr. Anna Armentrout, just received The University of Chicago Outstanding Educator Award, for doing just that.

This award comes for her work at Landon School in Bethesda, Maryland, where she taught before joining Keystone.

Every year, University of Chicago asks newly admitted students to recognize the educators who have influenced, challenged, and supported their students “along the path toward intellectual growth.” One of Dr. Armentrout's students at Landon nominated her, and the university honored her.

She teaches history at the Upper School.

"I am honored to have been nominated by a former student, and also grateful," she said. "Any influence I've had on students has relied just as much on their openness, curiosity, and willingness to take intellectual risks as it has on anything I do in the classroom. And those exchanges have made me grow, intellectually, as well."
