Kathy Levine, Driver Education assistant manager, was recently awarded ‘Teacher of Excellence in Driver Education’ through the Oregon Department Traffic Safety Education Association. Kathy said, “Driver Education is my passion and I love it. I have been working for HDESD since 2008 and have loved every minute of it. It is such a wonderful feeling when you are working with kids and trying to help them understand something, then all of a sudden “BING,” understanding shines through and then they start demonstrating it correctly. It is a great feeling to watch them succeed and feel good about themselves.” Congratulations Kathy!
