E-S teacher receives Technology Education Teacher of the Year award
On March 25, Eleva-Strum technology education teacher Craig Cegielski was awarded the Wisconsin Technology Education Association (WTEA) Teacher of the Year award at the WTEA awards banquet. The banquet was held at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee.
Each year, the Wisconsin Technology Education Association honors education and industry professionals who have demonstrated outstanding service and commitment to technology education. Cegielski has received state, national and international acclaim for his student-run business, Cardinal Manufacturing.
Cegielski started his teaching career with the Eleva-Strum Central High School in 2005.
“We have been working hard to improve the technology education program here for the past 10 years so it is exciting to see all of our hard work is making a difference,” Cegielski said.
Cegielski also noted that many people are responsible for the success of the technology education program, and that he has big plans to improve and expand the program in the future.
“We have had amazing support from school administration and staff, students, parents, community, technical colleges, universities, local, state and national industry partners,” Cegielski said. “So many have donated time, money, expertise, equipment, and advice which has allowed for us to continuously improve and expand our program. I would like to thank everyone who has helped over the past 10 years.”
