Henrico’s Top Teachers – Doug Budryk

Holman MS, health and physical education
Thanks to his educator father, Douglas Budryk grasped at an early age the power of a teacher to touch the lives of his students. “I was awed by his influence,” Budryk recalls of his dad. “I saw the lifelong impact educators could have on kids.”

Today, at Holman Middle School, Budryk has been able to have that same lasting influence on the physical and emotional well-being of his health and P.E. students. He doesn’t simply teach them the value of physical activity and healthy lifestyles, but helps build their confidence and shape positive attitudes.

He even – gasp! – convinces them to eat their vegetables. > Read more.

Henrico’s Top Teachers – Ann Marie Benson

Weinstein JCC, preschool
Ann Marie Benson began her journey at Weinstein JCC as a parent volunteer and has transformed into a 19-year preschool teaching veteran who also serves as the early morning childcare coordinator. At the JCC, she is able to combine her passion for working with children and her faith.

Benson is a graduate of Wilkes University but believes her education will never be complete when it comes to teaching. She learns something new every day from her children, co-workers, workshops, lectures and conferences and continues to take college courses each summer in early childhood education.

Henrico’s Top Teachers – David Savino

Hermitage HS, history
David Savino, 38-year teaching veteran at Hermitage High School, created a legacy when he started a 20th Century history class in 1986 that aimed to teach students the story of the 20th (and 21st) centuries and provide them with context for current events. The course is now taught in every high school in the county, viewed as an important supplement to the U.S. history SOL exams, and has remained one of the most sought-after and popular classes at Hermitage High School despite not being required for graduation.

There’s a reason why.

For many of Savino’s students, it’s simply his ability to make history interesting and relatable. > Read more.
