"This is a teacher who rushed to the hospital to be by the side of a student giving birth. This is a teacher who encouraged a student to keep up with schoolwork when he was in juvenile jail. This is a teacher who brought homework to a student recovering from being shot," writes Stephanie Wang in today's Indy Star.
That teacher is Tina Ahlgren '05, who once played clarinet in the DePauw University Band and the Tiger Pep Band, and has been named Indianapolis Public Schools teacher of the year at a recent school assembly.
