North Hills Middle School eighth grade social studies teacher Joe Welch was among the educators from across the country honored at Monday night's 2023 College Football Playoff National Championship at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.

Mr. Welch, who is the Council of Chief State School Officers' 2022 Pennsylvania Teacher of the Year, was on the field as America's teachers were recognized for their ongoing dedication to our youth prior to the game. He also spent some time with the Second Gentleman of the United States Douglas Emhoff, while at the game.

Mr. Welch has been in Los Angeles with the CCSSO state Teachers of the Year taking part in various events leading up to the championship including a roundtable discussion with U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona.

What an unforgettable experience! Thank you for continuing to make us #nhproud on a national stage!
