A National Board Certified Teacher is one of 10 U.S. teachers to win the PBS Teachers' Innovation Award. Tricia Fuglestad of Illinois was recognized in part for her innovative art-teaching methods, which include creating learning tools and programs on her classroom whiteboard. Fuglestad makes art-related videos to help her elementary-school students learn, and her students create their own videos. "She represents a new wave of innovative teachers from the area who are using unconventional teaching methods to connect with their students," said a spokeswoman for the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.
