Colorado Teacher of the Year

Susan Elliott of Highlands Ranch High School in Littleton is the 2009 Colorado Teacher of the Year. And she’s one of the four finalists for the 2009 National Teacher of the Year Award. The winner of that award will be honored by President Obama in April. Elliott is the school’s deaf and hard of hearing instructor. She also teaches English and social studies as well. Elliott suffered hearing loss at an early age and became profoundly deaf in her late teens.
