Amy Homer, a 2014 Slippery Rock University graduate with a degree in early childhood and special education, was honored with the Promising Practitioners Award from the Pennsylvania Association for Middle Level Education.

Homer, an English language arts teacher at Boyce Middle School in the Upper St. Clair School District, was nominated for the award by Dan O'Rourke, Boyce Middle School principal, and Christine Mussomeli, Boyce Middle School assistant principal.

The PAMLE Promising Practitioner Award is presented to teachers who are just beginning their middle school careers and who have made a positive impact on both their school and community. Homer was a long-term substitute in the USC school district before joining the Boyce faculty in August 2017.
