Indians News · NHMS’ Anthony Burns 1 of 3 finalists for NHL’s Teacher of the Year


North Hills Middle School sixth grade STEAM teacher Anthony Burns is one of three finalists across the U.S. and Canada in the running to be named the NHL and NHLPA Future Goals program’s Most Valuable Teacher of the Year!

The program, presented by software and technology company SAP, celebrates teachers who not only educate students, but help instill values, build character and shape the future generations of smart, responsible citizens.

In January, Burns was one of 20 teachers competing for the program’s Teacher of the Month title and he won, receiving $10,000 to use toward technology purchases for his school and district.

He’s now up against February and March’s monthly winners for the coveted Most Valuable Teacher of the Year designation and an additional $20,000 in technology grants!

The contest is voter-driven, and the community is encouraged to vote for Mr. Burns once daily Monday, May 3 through Friday, May 7. Voting takes place online NHL.com/MVT.

The NHSD community helped him win in January; let’s help him do it again!

In addition to January’s honor, Mr. Burns was the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Teacher of the Month last October.
