Pre-Algebra Teacher Sheburra Moore-Haugsness Gives As Well As Receives

Many people are unaware that The Smith Center Las Vegas is a nonprofit organization that provides many Education and Outreach programs, in addition to presenting hundreds of shows each year. A highly successful program is the Heart of Education Awards, which The Smith Center created to recognize outstanding Clark County School District educators.

Each year, the awards program honors hundreds of nominees at a special awards gala, with 20 CCSD educators named Heart of Education Award winners – each receiving a $5,000 cash prize, plus a $1,000 donation benefiting the school program of their choice. According to Candy Schneider, Vice President of Education and Outreach, 2016 winner and pre-algebra teacher Sheburra Moore-Haugsness chose to share her award with her peers and certain students, proving that not only is her mind behind education–her heart follows.
