At the SLU 1818 meeting held on April 27, Heather Essig – Visitation’s SLU 1818 coordinator and Upper School science educator – was awarded the Sister M. Cathlin Casey Award for Teaching Excellence. This award is given to a SLU 1818 teacher who has a “commitment to academic excellence, rigorous expectations of her students, and a contagious sense of joy.”
Saint Louis University's 1818 Advanced College Credit program offers students the opportunity to earn college credit at a discounted rate. There are over 500 teachers in the SLU 1818 program so this is a tremendous honor. Congratulations, Heather!
