Oklahoma City — The State Senate has honored an Oklahoma physical science teacher for being one of only five educators nationwide to be inducted into the National Teachers Hall of Fame.  Deborah Cornelison, a ninth-grade physical science teacher at Byng Junior High School, was a guest in the Senate chamber on Thursday when members honored her accomplishments with the passage of Senate Concurrent Resolution 30, by Sen. Susan Paddack and Rep. Todd Thomsen.

Cornelison has been teaching physics and chemistry since 1988.  She has a bachelor’s degree in biology, a master’s degree in education, and is also nationally-certified in adolescent and young adulthood science.  She’s won numerous awards throughout her career, including the Oklahoma Science Teachers Association Teacher of the Year, the Oklahoma Science and Engineering Fair Hall of Fame, Byng Teacher of the Year and has been a finalist for Oklahoma Teacher of the Year.  Cornelison also serves as the grant writer and director for the Mathematics and Science partnership program to help prepare more educators to teach science in the classroom.  Paddack said Cornelison’s experience and dedication represent the qualities of a National Hall of Fame educator.
