Madison East High School teacher named global educator of the year.

MADISON, Wis. - A world language teacher at East High School was named Global Educator of the Year, by the Wisconsin Superintendent's International Education Council. 

Claudine Clark was awarded the honor in Milwaukee on Friday at the General Session of the Wisconsin State Education Convention. 

Clark is being recognized for the third annual award for her contributions to East High School, by raising substantial scholarship funds for her students to travel, bringing in international teachers to the school, helping students become lifelong learners and collaborating with other educators. 

In order to win the award, educators need to create a global awareness for students, model global learning, and teach a certificate program for graduating high school students. The recipient of the award receives $1,000 from the Madison Rotary clubs. 

Clark grew up in Wisconsin and earned a degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in secondary education, French and English as a second language. She has taught internationally in Benin, Japan, France, Canada and Egypt. Locally, she's taught in Green Lake, Hortonville and Janesville, in addition to the Madison Metropolitan School District.
