Westwood Teacher Receives Excellence in Education Award

Congratulations to Dan Phan for being selected for September’s Excellence in Education award. Mr. Phan is a math teacher at Westwood High School in Mesa and was nominated because of his passion for math and his ability to inspire student to do their best. He is also the coach for the Academic Decathlon.

Anna Clermont, mother of two previous students of Mr. Phan and nominator for the award wrote, “My son was so inspired by Mr. Phan that he chose to major in Math at ASU. He is now a TA for 2 Calculus classes at ASU. My daughter was also inspired by Mr. Phan and, combined with her love for science and math, is now majoring in Chemical Engineering at ASU. We are proud to have had Mr. Phan teach our children and know that their lives were profoundly impacted by him.”

Excellence in Education is a partnership between Rio Salado College and KEZ 99.9 FM, which recognizes Valley teachers. Students and parents of students are encouraged to nominate K-12 teachers who are excellent at their profession and have gone above-and-beyond the call of duty to make a difference in their community.


Each month, a Valley K-12 teacher will be selected from all the entries to be recognized for their outstanding contribution to education. KEZ’s Marty Manning will visit the teacher’s school to surprise them with their “Excellence in Education” Award. The surprise visit will be broadcast during the Beth and Friends Show. All winning teachers are rewarded with $99, an Excellence in Education Award, and a Rio Salado College gift bag.

To nominate a special teacher, please visit KEZ 99.9 keyword excellence.
