Melissa Haugen was recognized by the Arizona IB Schools (AZIBS) 2016 Diploma Program Teacher of the Year. There are 22 Arizona high schools offering the Diploma Program so this is really a special honor. Our entire IB Team of teachers is incredible, hardworking teachers dedicated to the ideals of the International Baccalaureate Organization. Since Mrs. Haugen has joined the staff at FHS, she has worked tirelessly to build what has become a very flourishing art program. Her IB students have consistently knocked the IB Art assessment out of the park earning very strong grades. In several years, Mrs. Haugen’s IB Art students outscored the world average! In addition to being devoted to her art students, Mrs. Haugen dedicates countless hours as a mentor teacher and is quick to volunteer when someone needs help. We are fortunate to have Mrs. Haugen on the FHS staff. Congratulations, Mrs. Haugen!
