Glenbrook South PE teacher Timothy Monahan was recognized as High School Teacher of the Year by the Northeastern District of the Illinois Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (IAHPERD). The honor recognizes Monahan as an outstanding instructor who is dedicated to motivating youth to participate in a lifetime of physical exercise and health.
“Tim has built an impressive Adventure Education program and has added to our curriculum every year,” said Steve Stanicek, Instructional Supervisor of Physical Education, Driver Ed, and Health at Glenbrook South High School.
“Tim’s determination, commitment and leadership are some of the main reasons for the success of the GBS program,” he added. The team-building program includes camping skills, fire making, cooking, climbing wall and high ropes course.
He will be honored at the NED awards banquet in October. Monahan has been teaching at GBS since 1996 and currently serves as Boys Volleyball Head coach.
