I was pleased to see that an old friend of mine, Louis Lozzi, won a teaching prize.
The South Philly Review offers a piece on him and the prize.
The South Philly native was one of three teaching grand prize winners of the Citadel Heart of Learning Awards.
Louis Lozzi, a Pennsport resident who teaches at Paul Robeson High School for Human Services, was honored as a grand prize recipient on May 2 at the Mann Center for Performing Arts during the Citadel Heart of Learning Awards ceremony, which honored a total of 31 teachers from the Philadelphia region.
Lozzi won a personal prize of $5,000 while earning an additional $5,000 for his school. He was the only grand prize winner from the School District of Philadelphia and was joined by Deb Rooney, Bradford Heights Elementary of the Downingtown Area School District, and George Hankins, Colonial Middle School of the Colonial School District. The 28 other honorees all earned $1,000 in gift cards to spend in their classrooms.
