Blackfoot High School band director Jan Eddington has been recognized as the 2013 Idaho Music Educator of the Year. She received this award last month at the Idaho Music Educatorsâ€™ Association meeting in Nampa.
â€śI was totally caught by surprise,â€ť Eddington said. â€śThere are so many amazing teachers in this state.
â€śIt makes me all the more appreciative of this honor,â€ť she said. â€śIt means a lot to be recognized by my peers because I have such respect for them.â€ť
Eddington will retire at the end of this school year after 23 years of teaching music in public schools in Idaho.
