Chris Cropley Receives Outstanding Educator Award from the University of Chicago

Christopher Cropley

On October 16th, we were delighted to present Senior School History Teacher Chris Cropley with the University of Chicago’s Outstanding Educator Award.

This distinguished award has existed for more than three decades. Each year, the University invites first-year students to nominate an educator an educator who has influenced them, challenged them, or helped them along the path toward intellectual growth. They receive letters back from hundreds of students, inspired by teachers who have changed the course of their lives, who taught them to re-imagine texts, to delve deeper into problem-solving, and to think beyond the borders of the classroom in the pursuit of their own education.

Congratulations Mr. Cropley!
