ES Save the Date

Application to present is open!

The 4th annual 5DP Educator Showcase will be held on May 28th, 2020! Mark your calendars and considering presenting. We are looking for educators from all five districts who are interested in sharing their innovative ideas with their peers. We will coach you through the process to ensure your success. Past presenters have found it to be a very positive experience. We will also be hosting an optional online information session on presenting on March 2nd from 4-5.  Click HERE for more information about presenting. Click HERE to apply.

Nominate a presenter!

Do you know educators in your districts who are doing fantastic and innovative things? Many of these teachers are modest, shy, or don’t realize the amazing work they are doing. Please consider nominating a teacher to present at the Showcase. This means I will reach out to them personally and invite them to apply. I won’t force them, but it will feel nice to be recognized! I will also talk through with them the support that they will receive. To nominate a teacher click HERE.


Looking back…..
