AKRON — Tippecanoe Valley High School special education teacher Cami Shriver has made the top 25 for Indiana Teacher of the Year.
That’s according to the Indiana Department of Education.
Shriver has been a special education teacher at TVHS for 15 years. After graduating from Indiana Purdue University Fort Wayne in 2008, she returned to her hometown to begin her teaching career. Since coming to Valley, she has helped her school incorporate more inclusive practices and facilitate a better understanding of special education practices at a whole school level.
According to a Tippecanoe Valley School Corp. press release, she has been instrumental in helping create a culture of understanding and an appreciation of what makes each individual person unique. One of her greatest joys is watching her students graduate and go out in the community.
Over her career, Shriver has served in a variety of leadership roles from student council advisor to a member of the school improvement team. She loves being a part of the Valley Family and can often be found at a school event cheering on the Vikings. Shriver and her husband, Dave, reside on their family farm with their two children, Delaney, 13, and Tucker, 11.
