DAHS science teacher Rebecca McDermid has been selected as a University of Chicago Outstanding Educator. One of her students, senior Sarah Martin, was accepted into the University of Chicago Class of 2024 and recommended Rebecca for this award.

Each year, newly admitted students have the opportunity to select educators who go beyond everyday teaching and leave an impression that is carried over a lifetime. An Outstanding Educator thinks carefully about their instruction, shares an infectious love for learning, and cares for their students both inside and outside of the classroom.
The University of Chicago is honored to recognize your excellence as an educator who makes a positive impact every day and would like to extend our sincerest congratulations to you!
Thank you for going beyond the call of duty each and every day for your students!
