LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - One Belmont Elementary teacher was honored for her 32 years of service on Tuesday with the Scottish Rite Teaching Award.

Bobbie Ehrlich had no idea what was coming when she walked into the Belmont Elementary School Gym. She thought it was an assembly to showcase her fifth graders’ work.

The Scottish Rite Award is a distinguished award within Nebraska, specifically Lincoln Public Schools. It’s been given out for the last 65 years to an outstanding teacher.

Teachers are typically nominated by their administrators and others that work closely with them. Ehrlich was chosen for her dedication to preparing her fifth graders for supporting students and families in becoming ready for the future. She said she was shocked and honored by the award.

“I got to share this with the most important people in my life, my family and my family,” said Ehrlich. “My Belmont family and my family. I’m very appreciative of the opportunity every day to do what I believe i was put on this earth to do.”

Ehrlich has spent all 32 years of her teaching career at Belmont. She said she has taught three generations of Belmont students.
