Next week, we'll be honoring Duval County's best public school teachers at the EDDY Awards and announcing the 2014 Florida Blue Teacher of the Year! The EDDY Awards is a joint venture between the Jacksonville Public Education Fund and the Schultz Center for Teaching and Leadership, and it has evolved beyond an awards ceremony to build a network of exemplary teachers who are leaders in the community and who work to improve our schools, student performance and the teaching profession.
Tickets are $25 per person. Tickets have been extended for purchase until Thursday, March 6.
Please note that any ticket purchases made on March 3 and afterward will have to be picked up at our offices, 245 Riverside Ave., Ste. 310, Jacksonville, FL 32202.
Stay tuned for more information about our best public school teachers! We'll share 2013 Duval County Teacher of the Year, Apryl Shackelford's reflection with you next week.
