Less Than 3 Weeks to Nominate Education Champions
Schools may be closing for the summer, but there is still plenty of teaching and learning across the state. From summer camp to summer school, individuals all around Delaware are helping to provide opportunities for students to stay engaged.
Last year’s finalists included Natalie Way, the founder of Kent County’s Environmental Justice Camp, a program that targets underserved high school students and collaborates with local business and the community to offer students the chance to gain real life skills as they explore social justice, volunteerism, and environmental issues. Efforts such as hers are critical during these months—three months is a long time for to take a “break” from learning!
Our iEducate Delaware team is also hard at work, collecting nominations and discovering stories to share about the inspirational education champions we have in our state. From Sussex County librarians to Kent county principals, upstate teachers to downstate community leaders, this year’s iEducate Delaware nominees have already shown themselves to be a dedicated and innovative group of individuals working together for the good of our students.
It’s not too late to share more champions’ stories and celebrate their work! We’re still accepting nominations until the end of the month. Whether it’s a teacher who has gone above and beyond or a parent who has worked tirelessly to support his/her school, a community leader with an innovative program, or an especially forward-thinking principal, we want to hear their stories. Don’t wait, nominate them right now!
And don’t forget to check out stories of last year’s honorees, whose voices we have been featuring on our blog. And of course, you can join the conversation by tweeting #iEducate and following our Pinterest board and Facebook page.
We can’t wait to hear your stories!
