Debra Schapaugh Named 2020 USD 383 Master Teacher
Manhattan-Ogden USD 383 is pleased to announce that Debra Schapaugh has been named the 2020 USD 383 Master Teacher. Mrs. Schapaugh is a Reading Specialist/Title 1 teacher at Frank Bergman Elementary School.
She earned a B.S. in Elementary Education from Purdue University, a M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction from Kansas State University and a Reading Specialist Endorsement from Emporia State University. She has taught for USD 383 since 1979 at several schools (Marlatt, Northview, Strong Kindergarten and Bergman).
“What an honor to represent our district for the Master Teacher Award,” states Schapaugh. “Collectively, my work is certainly influenced by the thoughtful educators around me and by our students and families who offer me insights into their learning. This is, for me, a shared honor!”
Each USD 383 school was asked to nominate a teacher to be their Master Teacher candidate. The Manhattan-Ogden NEA Master Teacher committee reviewed all of the nominees and selected Mrs. Schapaugh as our district candidate. She is in the process of completing a notebook of her teaching experiences for the state committee in Emporia. The winners for the State of Kansas will be announced in the spring.
