congratulations to our nwesd teacher of the year

Teacher of the YearArlington High School teacher Ben Ballew, named as 2021 Regional Teacher of the Year by the Northwest Educational Service District 189 (NWESD).
Ballew was selected from a competitive group of teacher nominees from across the NWESD RegionBallew is a National Board Certified English Language Arts (ELA) teacher and ASB Advisor at Arlington High School in the Arlington School DistrictHe has been an educator with the district for 13 years.
 
Duane Fish, Arlington High School Principal, describes Ballew as, “An educator who inspires our students to achieve more than they ever imagined possible, both in the classroom and in our community. At AHS, we ask three things of Every Eagle: Be Involved, Work Hard and Be Kind. Not a day goes by without Ben Ballew role modeling these traits for our kids. He is engaging in the classroom, effective in his leadership  and inspirational to all who know him. Ben is a champion of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion on our campus.
In his application essay, Ballew wrote, “As an educator, I want my classroom to be a safe space where students feel that they have a voice and the autonomy to shape their learning experience in a way that reflects their interests and needs. I want them to feel empowered to analyze their experiences and change their world.
As a champion of social and racial justice and equity, Ballew’s recent efforts in the classroom include helping students connect to their family, culture, and community. He has dedicated his English 12: Literature of Social Justice course developing racial literacy and empowering students to be anti-racist advocates in their community. As a result of the course, he says that his students are having difficult - and necessary - conversations with their families about topics of culture, race, and privilege; moreover, they are taking their initial steps in authentic advocacy for their marginalized peers and community members.
 
 
“Ben is a gifted educator who engages and inspires students on a daily basis,” said Arlington Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Chrys Sweeting. “He is dedicated to removing barriers and increasing access for all students. We are proud of his efforts at Arlington High School and in our school district.”
"In reviewing Ben's Teacher of the Year materials, I was impressed by his work leading equity and social justice with the students of Arlington High School.  He clearly has made an impact in the lives of the students and community in Arlington." 
- David Forsythe, Assistant Superintendent of Operations NWESD
NWESD’s Assistant Superintendent of Operations, David Forsythe, helped guide the selection process of the recipient of NWESD’s Regional Teacher of the Year.

  • Contributing to a collection of teacher tales to be shared with legislators, educational leaders, and other stakeholders called From Seed to Apple. 
  • Traveling the state to share expertise with community groups, businesses, government officials, and future teachers.
