Daniel Adler Fist Bump Student

It was a surprise party at UP Academy Leonard today, with some special guests stopping by to drop jaws with a 2017-18 Milken Educator Award – and it’s $25,000 cash prize – for sixth grade science teacher Dan Adler. The Milken Educator Awards are also known as the “Oscars of Teaching,”
and Mr. Adler is the only winner from Massachusetts this year, the first ever from Lawrence Public Schools, and one of just 45 honorees nationwide this year. Congratulations to Mr. Adler and the entire community of amazing students, teachers, staff and families at UP Academy Leonard.
