Haug surprised with recognition

{October 3, 2019} BRENTWOOD, MO – The Emerson Excellence in Teaching Awards program annually recognizes K-12 and college/university educators in the St. Louis metropolitan area who are examples of excellence in their field. This year, the Brentwood School District is proud to recognize Robyn Haug (Brentwood High School) as the 2019-2020 Emerson Excellence in Teaching Educator!

Ms. Haug has been with Brentwood School District for 12 years and has been an educator since 1999. She graduated from Truman State University with a degree in Communications before earning a Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction from Walden and a Master of Fine Arts from Lindenwood. 

“In my work at BHS, I am absolutely most proud of teaching students to advocate,” Ms. Haug said. “In life, we all have to learn to speak up when it is important. In our current societal climate, it is more important than ever that we learn logical argumentation, advocacy skills, and clear communication. Whether it is an English discussion, a news article, a yearbook spread, or a debate speech, I hope all students learn to seek justice and advocate for issues that matter to them.”

In addition to being recognized with other educators in the region at a banquet, as an Emerson Excellence in Teaching Recipient, Ms. Haug will have the ability to apply for Emerson exclusive teaching grants. “We are proud of Robyn and the work she does every day for students,” said Dr. Ed Johnson, principal at Brentwood High School. “Her commitment to building our journalism and debate programs is evidence of how far she goes to support students and their learning.”
