Honor Roll: SPS Educators are Recognized During Teacher Appreciation Week

Aaron Chamberlin, Ballard High School – Science 

Aaron Chamberlin

He always has funny chemistry memes up on the board every day, is serious about our education, and makes sure all students understand the content we are learning, even if it requires answering a ton of questions- which I think exemplifies the Ballard High School spirit.
