West Middle Teacher Earns Peabody Award
Jason Lievanos, West Middle School, was recently surprised with the Peabody Energy Leaders in Education award. The Leaders in Education program rewards dedicated and compassionate educational professionals.
Lievanos credits his grandparents for laying the framework that led him to become a teacher. Born in the U.S., with family ties in Mexico, his grandparents were hard-working, family-centered people who set an example in serving their California community. Athletics and coaches also played a role in the destiny of Lievanos, who attended Missouri Baptist University on a wrestling scholarship.
Lievanos was named Parkway’s Middle School Teacher of the Year and the District Teacher of the Year for the 2013-14 school year.
