Great teachers work tirelessly to prepare each and every one of their students to make valuable contributions to our city in life beyond the classroom. Duval County schools are filled with these incredible teachers, and we are excited to celebrate and honor the amazing teaching and learning occurring in their classrooms.
You may have noticed on Twitter or Facebook that each semifinalist will receive a $1,000 Professional Learning Scholarship generously provided by Florida Blue. Semifinalists can use this Professional Learning Scholarship to pursue a professional learning experience of their choice. They can attend an educational conference, take an educational course, bring a professional learning experience to their school, start a professional learning community in their school and more!
With this scholarship, the recipients are free to choose their own professional learning and have that experience covered financially. We are so grateful to Florida Blue for sponsoring this amazing opportunity.
Every day this week, we’ll be announcing three of the 15 semifinalists for the 2018 Florida Blue Duval County Teacher of the Year Award via our Facebook and Twitter. We hope that you’ll help us celebrate these 15 superb educators by sharing, commenting and liking these posts. On Friday, Dec. 8, you can find the full list of the 15 semifinalists right here on our website.
How are you celebrating our 2018 Teachers of the Year? You can help us spread the word by retweeting, liking and commenting on our posts or purchase your tickets to attend the EDDY Awards and find out which of the semifinalists will represent Duval County at the state level.
