Sneh Kothari, an SSD Vocational Skills Program (VSP) teacher at the Saint Louis Zoo, has been named SSD’s 2015 Teacher of the Year for her dedication to students and her innovative efforts to help them achieve their full potential.

Kothari has been a teacher with SSD since 2003. Her experience includes working in the Community-Based Vocational Instruction Program as well as working with students diagnosed with autism.

VSP sites allow students to gain valuable work experience to prepare for employment and independent living. The VSP site at the Saint Louis Zoo allows students to be placed in appropriate volunteer work experiences such as food service, guest services, ground maintenance, gift shop or distribution.

Kothari was selected as one of SSD’s eight Key to the Classroom Award winners earlier this month. The Key to the Classroom Award honors SSD’s top teachers for their creative approaches to student learning, innovative programming and commitment to student success.

Kothari will represent SSD next year in the statewide competition for Missouri Teacher of the Year, a program sponsored by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
