Quite an Asset

Congratulations to ACTE's Spankie Lou Bassett, a family and consumer sciences and culinary arts instructor at Bernalillo High School in Bernalillo, N.M. Bassett not only took top honors as the ACTE Teacher of the Year at the 1999 convention in Orlando, she also was awarded the prestigious Milken Family Foundation National Educator Award, which she received in June. Bassett has been an ACTE member since 1989. ACTE and the Family and Consumer Sciences Division is lucky to have an educator of Bassett's caliber
