This is the third year for the awards, a partnership between the George Gund and Cleveland foundations, the District and the Cleveland Teachers Union. The goal is to spread best practices by honoring teachers who set a standard of excellence and serve as an example for their peers.
Last week, at the 39th conference, the club honored the District’s top seniors and connected them with civic leaders to discuss issues that are important to the seniors and articulate their visions of the future.
A duo of seniors in the culinary arts program at Jane Addams Business Careers Center took first-place at the "Burger Battle" in Columbus in February.
The Parent Leadership Institute seeks to enable parents and caregivers to become leading advocates for children and school improvement under The Cleveland Plan.
The CMSD News Bureau asked the winners for their teaching philosophies, what about their practices they will share with peers and how they will share it, what drew them to CMSD and urban education and who served as their role models. Here are excerpts from their responses.
