Teacher Receives Mark Miller Award



Tracy Lee, a consulting teacher for Topeka Public Schools, has received the Mark Miller Award from TARC.  The award recognizes an educator who supports inclusion of children with developmental disabilities, not only in the school setting, but also in the community.  The award is named to honor Mark Miller, a parent and past TARC board member.

TARC Development Director Sherry Lundry said, “Tracy is in attendance at nearly every IEP of those students receiving special services in education.  She is a high level professional in her field with an expertise in special education.  Tracy’s knowledge is grounded in years of education and practice as well as genuine compassion for the students she serves.  She is a well respected advocate for all persons with developmental and related disabilities, but especially for the students of Topeka USD 501.”
