PM English teacher earns national recognition

Congratulations to Lindsay Feger, recently selected to receive the Pennsylvania Leadership Development Award from the National Council of Teachers of English.

Feger, a first-year English teacher at Penn Manor High School, is one of only five teachers nationwide to receive the award, which recognizes an early-career teacher who has demonstrated a capacity for professional leadership.

Feger was nominated for the award by a colleague, according to Jennifer Brown, president of the Pennsylvania Council of Teachers of English and Language Arts.

“After talking with some of her colleagues, it was obvious that Lindsay was the right choice for this award,” Brown said.

Feger, who teaches Foundations of Literature II and Senior Media at Penn Manor, said she was “humbled and grateful” for the recognition.

“I have had so many valuable experiences and worked with some incredible educators in my four years of teaching, which has only made me better through their collaboration,” she said. The award “has been the ‘icing on the cake’ to a wonderful transition to Penn Manor.”

Before coming to Penn Manor, she taught English and special education for three years at Annville-Cleona High School after graduating from Millersville University with a bachelor’s degree in special education and English.

Lindsay and her husband, Chris, a Penn Manor math teacher, live in Manheim.

Feger and the other award winners will be honored Nov. 20 at the National Council of Teachers of English annual convention in Atlanta.
