Unsuspecting teacher wins $25,000 prize

When Amanda Sequin walked into a recent school-wide assembly at the Curtis Guild Elementary School in East Boston, she had no idea what she was in for. State and City officials surprised Ms. Sequin with the news that she had received a 2006 Milken Family Foundation National Educator award, including a $25,000 cash prize. The Milken award is given annually to unsuspecting teachers, principals and educators from around the country. Known as "The Oscars of Teaching," the awards were created by the foundation as a way to reward, attract and retain top educators in the nation's public schools.
