Talent for teaching…

Brett Kushner of Tampa was voted Teacher of the Year for the 2017-2018 school year at his SLAM charter school in Citrus Park. For the honor, he won a cash award along with a trip to Miami where he will mingle with other SLAM! (Sports Leadership & Management) teachers from around the state. Kushner teaches sixth grade at his school, which serves kids in grades 6-12 and has more than 500 students. Students focus on sports-related majors and college prep. Kushner has a master’s degree in elementary education and is currently working on another master’s in educational leadership. For the 2018-2019 school year Brett will take on a new role and will be dean of students. Proud parents are Alyce and David Kushner of Tampa, aunt and uncle Joy and Jerry Lolli, also of Tampa, brother Seth in St. Petersburg and another brother, Micah, in Chicago. Excellent teaching runs in the family as Brett’s mom, who has been teaching for 25 years in Hillsborough County, received a Teacher of the Year award in 2007.
