Platteview Central's 8th grade Social Studies teacher, Mr. Andrew Soneson, has been named the Springfield VFW Post 143 Teacher of the Year for grades 6-8. Mr. Soneson is currently in his 5th year at Platteview Central. Prior to teaching, Mr. Soneson served as a United States Marine, leading troops in operations in both Afghanistan and Iraq. Mr. Soneson's unique background as a veteran made him an logical choice to be awarded this honor, which is given to a teacher who not only excels in the classroom, but also teaches patriotism and citizenship. Mr. Soneson does both of those things quite well. Mr. Soneson grew up in St. Paul, Nebraska, and attended the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. Mr. Soneson is married to his wife of 11 years, Lynn, and has four children, all named after U.S. presidents: Reagan, McKinley, Lincoln, and Monroe. Congratulations to Mr. Soneson on this deserving award.
