His principal said Seth Brown, the only teacher in the state to win the Milken Educator Award this year, is an innovator and that she talks with him often, if only to find out what he's going to try before parents start calling.

What does he teach?! Just a little short on actual information, Strib. Great he is being recognized, but it would a story if there was some actual substance...

Congratulations Seth, now the jealousy will start. Most teachers feel that everyone should be paid the same, I disagree, some are simply better than others and deserve a bonus!

@ CabelaKip....Read the first line of the story. "Seth Brown, a math teacher at Wayzata West Middle School, won a $25,000 educator award in a surprise ceremony at the school Monday morning."

In the first sentence it states Brown is a math teacher. (Maybe the article was updated since you pointed out the missing info?)

I've watched him in action and agree this is a good choice. He is one of many Wayzata K-12 teachers who could have won this award. Its not so difficult to support schools when you are supporting teachers like this. (Math, silly, second word after his name in the body of the article. Read more than headlines, please)

"Most teachers feel that everyone should be paid the same" How do you know this? Are you a teacher? Didn't think so.

Do bad teachers get money taken away?

Weird, it takes a private sector foundation to reward good teachers... Can we learn something from this? Not according to the unions...

Congratulations to him. Maybe now he can afford to live in Wayzata as well as teach there.
