RHINELANDER - A Northwoods teacher is being recognized for connecting her students with the world.
A Rhinelander High School teacher won the second annual Global Educator of the Year Award.
Linda Goldsworthy teaches social studies at Rhinelander High School.
She is the only teacher in the state to win the award.
Her experiences traveling as a college student to places like China and Germany inspired her to create the same opportunities for her own students.
"One of the things that gets me coming here every day is just seeing their faces and trying to enhance their understanding of the world we live in," said Goldsworthy.
As a teacher Goldsworthy's goal is providing global experiences for all students.
She believes teaching a Comparative Religions class at a public school set her apart from other applicants.
Winning the award has helped spread an important message that Goldsworthy encourages.
