REASONS TO CELEBRATE: Good news made for great times this year, especially for Amir Abo-Shaeer, the Dos Pueblos High School physics teacher and the brains behind the school’s acclaimed Engineering Academy, who’s pictured reenacting the moment he was named a 2010 MacArthur Fellow. The honor carries with it a $500,000 Genius Award, which Shaeer, the first teacher to be named a fellow in the grant program’s 30-year history, is free to spend as he pleases.
