Teacher Awards

Courtney Sears

Reckford Teaching Prize, Ephesus Elementary School

“I take every opportunity I can to create engaging learning experiences that challenge my students to think critically and creatively, and to see themselves and the world in new ways. The excitement and curiosity that comes from these experiences help strengthen our classroom community and create a positive and inviting classroom culture. Student choice and voice is central to classroom engagement and creating a sense of community in our online classroom.”
