Ohio Education Association Names Teacher of the Year

Mark Lowrie is this year's recipient

The Ohio Education Association (OEA) extends its warm congratulations to Gahanna-Jefferson Education Association member Mark Lowrie, who was named 2024 Ohio Teacher of the Year last Thursday.

"Mr. Lowrie demonstrates clearly why public education matters so much in Ohio," said OEA President Scott DiMauro, who attended Thursday's event at Gahanna Lincoln High School to surprise Lowrie with the news of his award. "Great public schools open a world of opportunities for students from all walks of life, and exceptional educators like Mr. Lowrie make that possible."

"His dedication to building outstanding broadcast journalism programs for his students — in both his current role at Gahanna Lincoln High School and previously at Marion L. Steele High School in Amherst — exemplifies the incredible work Ohio's public educators do every day to help their students learn valuable life skills so they can follow their dreams," DiMauro added. "Mr. Lowrie's students over the past two decades are so lucky that he followed his own dream and found his calling in the classroom."
