This exceptional educator promotes instruction that inspires students to become active citizens of the world as they participate in scientific thinking, solve problems, and prepare for college. In Mr. Kagami’s classes, science concepts become relevant because students find practical applications all around them. Mr. Kagami is truly deserving of this award.

Stop by Mr. Ryan Kagami’s seventh grade science classroom and you might find students developing theoretical frameworks for the analysis and predictive understanding of microbial communities, or play acting as cells, or folding and creasing papers to create three-dimensional graphic organizers. In this exceptional teacher's classes, students quickly discover that in order to understand the world of science they have to become part of it. Mr. Kagami is received a Milken Teacher Of Promise award for his efforts.
