Congratulations to NAFCEA member, Suzanne Jackson, who applied and has been awarded an NEA Master Teacher Grant! This is an award of $15,000.00 stipend!
What is the Master Teacher Project? It is an initiative of the National Education Association to create a body of knowledge around effective teaching.
There are three main goals associated with the Master Teacher Project:
- To create a year’s worth of CCSS-aligned, classroom-ready lessons developed by educators available on an open-source platform.
- To recognize exceptional teachers and provide them with professional development and the opportunity to become teacher leaders.
- To have the NEA, in partnership with BetterLesson, expand its core work to have greater focus on teacher instructional practice and the implementation of the CCSS.
We are so proud that Suzanne has been chosen out of thousands of applicants to represent NAFCEA in this great professional endeavor!
