Sean Pang, English and media arts teacher at Rockville High School, won the 2019 Claes Nobel Educator of the Year Award. He is one of 10 recipients across the U.S.
He says his vulnerability and honesty helps his students trust him.
Pang received a $1,000 grant, which he plans to use to film a documentary that brings light to financial issues in Montgomery County that he believes go unnoticed. He hopes that the exposure will raise money for county businesses and shelters that help students who struggle financially.
