Norwood teacher wins national teaching honor, $20,000 grant


Leila Kubesch has been named the 2020 Toyota Family Teacher of the Year. The middle and high school Spanish teacher was nominated for the national honor by someone in the community. Her innovative methods to reach her students, like helping them create podcasts, helped earn her the title.

The $20,000 grant Kubesch won will go toward a literacy project to help families with limited resources. Kubesch was Ohio’s Teacher of the Year in 2019.
