Ann Viegut, teacher at John Muir Middle, received the prestigious Resolution of Commendation from the Board of Education for being named 2019 Middle School Teacher of the Year by the Wisconsin Council for the Social Studies. In nominating Ms. Viegut, Principal Larry Mancl said, 


"'Without geography you are nowhere!' This quote is at the core of Ann's beliefs and passion for her students, colleagues and the success of our community. Ann is a remarkable professional, colleague, teacher, mentor, coach, leader, and champion for public education. Ann has dedicated more than twenty-five years to the most noble and challenging of professions - teaching. 

Those who have crossed paths with Ann - both figuratively and literally, have come to appreciate her intelligence, insight, and her collaborative approach to writing curriculum, creating assessments, coordinating content speakers, and bringing regional and national resources to provide educational opportunities for our students. The ‘global’ approach Ann brings to providing opportunities for professional growth and being an important voice and listener when involved in building and district decisions complements the diversity of the WausauSchool District.


Her colleagues describe Ann as a consummate professional who exemplifies what the education profession needs from its educators: integrity, drive, passion, grit, resiliency, ingenuity, enthusiasm, and dedication. Ann is genuinely committed to challenging herself intellectually - to use her knowledge and skills to engage students in academic rigor and relevance.


By chance or by choice, we are fortunate Ann's path has led her to 44 degrees, 57 minutes north latitude; 89 degrees, 39 minutes west longitude, 1,200 feet above sea level - a place we more commonly call WAUSAU! "
