East Washington MS Celebrates Becoming a School to Watch
As a School to Watch, East Washington is an official mentor for other schools, but they have already had many visits from other teachers and students. Many marvel at the remodeling, the house structure, and their participation in Ron Clark Academy activities, including "The Amazing Shake." As principal King eloquently explained during the ceremony, after touring, when visiting students are asked what they liked, they don't mention those things, but reply, "The teachers. They were so much fun." When the teachers are questioned, they describe how impressive the students were, as they shake hands, introduce themselves, and smile to start the interaction.
Nominations Open for Shining Star Teachers and Students!
IMLEA and Horace Mann have partnered for the last several years to recognize students and teachers for outstanding contributions in support of their school. The Shining Star Award is open to any student in grade 5 – 9, or any teacher with any number of years of experience. Any certified staff member from an IMLEA member school may nominate a student or a colleague, but the nomination form must be signed by a building administrator.
Teachers designated as "STAR" winners are recognized in honor of Dr. Roger Boop, a retired professor from the education department at Butler University and long time friend and supporter of IMLEA. You can find the applications and more information for both on our website. Nominations are due May 1.
