Music teacher wins Steward award


Steward School Head of School Dan Frank presented the Paul R. Cramer “Best Faculty Award” to 32-year veteran music teacher Bonnie Anderson last month.

Bestowed annually on the faculty member who best embraces the characteristics of “balance, perspective, and humor” as exemplified by late Headmaster Paul R. Cramer, the award was established in 2008 to honor the man and his contributions to The Steward School. During his tenure, Cramer talked about the “pillars” of the Steward community and described Anderson as one of Steward’s pillars. The sentiment regarding Anderson’s place in the Steward family hasn’t changed.

“Bonnie is absolutely amazing. She works often all day without a single free period to plan—she is with students nearly every period of the week. She never, ever, loses her temper or her cool; she is deeply passionate about what she does, but she is flexible and caring and dedicated,” said Frank in his presentation of the award.
