Kristine Heaver is one of 20 Northern Virginia teachers being recognized by the Washington Post.
Heaver, who teaches at Osbourn High School, is the 2018 Washington Post “Teacher of the Year” for Manassas City Public Schools (MCPS).
The award honors prekindergarten- through 12th-grade teachers who help improve education in the Washington, D.C., region, according to a release.
Since she became a physics teacher at Osbourn in 2012, Heaver has helped the school expand the curriculum, which now offers advanced and second-year physics classes.
She seeks to teach her students about physics by experimenting with a variety of objects.
Heaver, who previously served as an environmental engineer, received a master’s in environmental science from Rutgers University. She earned a master’s in secondary education science from George Mason University.
MCPS will acknowledge Heaver at its employee recognition ceremony, Evening with the Stars, on May 16. She will also be recognized on May 24 at the Manassas City Public Schools Education Foundation’s 20th annual Night of Excellence.
