Three Alumni Among Teacher of the Year Finalists

Truman alumni (from left) Kristina Kohl, Matthew Matheney and Lindsey Watson are each a finalist for the Missouri Teacher of the Year Award.

With roughly 70,000 educators in the state of Missouri, it is nearly impossible to recognize all those dedicated professionals who devote their careers to teaching. The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education tries to do just that with its Teacher of the Year program, and among the current seven finalists, three are Truman alumni.

Kristina Kohl, Matthew Matheney and Lindsey Watson all advanced to the finals for the 2022 Missouri Teacher of the Year award. The program recognizes the efforts of effective teachers who work tirelessly to provide a high-quality education to their students.

“Sincere congratulations to Lindsey, Kristina and Matthew,” said Lance Ratcliff, dean of the School of Health Sciences and Education. “We are very proud of them, and we are honored to have helped all three of these alumni embark on such successful careers.”
