Cast Your Vote for Nebinger’s Leslie Grace for Philadelphia Magazine’s Best Teacher Award

Philadelphia magazine called for nominations for outstanding teachers in the Greater Philadelphia area that go above and beyond their job descriptions. With the overwhelming amount of submissions received, the editors have narrowed them down to the Top 5 and Nebinger’s very own Leslie Grace has made the list!

Ms. Grace has been teaching for 13 years, and in that time she has had the opportunity to collaborate, learn from, and benefit from her dedication to her students and commitment to art education in the city of Philadelphia. Ms. Grace has built an entire art department at her current school from the ground up and raised over $20,000 for her students and school.
