A Johnson County elementary teacher won the national Milken Educator Award on Tuesday for her work in student engagement and for improving student achievement in her fourth-grade math student.

Angela Fowler is a fourth-grade math teacher at Grassy Creek Elementary in the Clark-Pleasant School Corporation and was surprised with a $25,000 check, along with the recognition, that she can now use for whatever she wants.

Fowler said in a gym full of cheering students that she was shocked to be receiving the award and thanked all of her fellow educators who work with her at the school.

“I found a home in math, and I love math,” Fowler said. “I love teaching math, and I can’t wait to see where that takes me. But again, none of that would be possible without my students.”
