LAWTON, OK (KSWO)-Dozens of area teachers were honored Tuesday night, at LPS’s recognition event entitled “Celebrate!”

Those recognized include LPS's Teacher of the Year.  Out of seven finalists, Lori Siltman, a special education teacher at Eisenhower High School was awarded the honor. 
Siltman who has taught at Eisenhower for six years says she loves working with teenagers and helping them be the best they can be.

She says her mother, who was also a teacher that loved and truly cared for her students, was her greatest role model.

Siltman was not only surprised to be named Teacher of the Year, but humbled, especially after hearing from one of her students on the impact she's had.

 “To actually hear how l've changed a life, it validates that I'm actually doing what I pray and try to do very day and that's reach kids and help them see their potential and it's very humbling and touching to see I really made that much of a difference in a student's life,” said Siltman.

Siltman is now in the running for State Teacher of the Year which will be announced in September.

Maris Ferreira was also honored tonight as LPS's Rookie of the year.
