                HONORING MILKEN AWARD WINNER SETH BROWN

  (Mr. PAULSEN asked and was given permission to address the House for 
1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. PAULSEN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate Wayzata West 
Middle School math teacher Seth Brown on winning the 2011 Milken 
Educator Award. Seth was honored by the Milken Family Foundation for 
his efforts to close the achievement gap and use creative technology in 
the classroom, particularly in using iPods as math aids.
  This award is known as the ``Oscars of Teaching.'' The Milken Family 
Foundation gives these outstanding teachers a $25,000 award, with no 
strings attached. Seth plans to use this money to help pay his graduate 
school bills as well as donating some of the money to the local PTA, 
which was a strong supporter of his use of technology in the classroom.
  Mr. Speaker, I want to congratulate Seth Brown on his achievement and 
for also being an outstanding teacher. And to Seth and all the other 
teachers out there, I want to thank you for doing what you do in 
educating and inspiring the next generation of American leaders.
