Do what you love and excellence will follow. That's a lesson we can all learn from Matt Bender, who has been an English Teacher to juniors and seniors at Forman School since 2000. Bender was bestowed the John N. Forman Award for Excellence in Education at the 2016 Commencement ceremony, and although he has dedicated himself to this career all these years, he was still surprised. "It's one of those things that I just don't think about," he says humbly. "Receiving the award was a great honor. It meant a great deal to me to be recognized for doing what I love."

I was recently at an educational conference listening to a very well-regarded national speaker talk about ways to increase academic rigor. A colleague leaned over and commented that she was so tired about hearing about academic rigor. The only time she wanted to hear the word rigor, at this point, was when it was followed by the word mortis. She felt like the combined words of academic and rigor should be banned because it is so overused it no longer means anything. I think she is not far off the mark.
