The Celebration of Teaching event is designed to shine a bright spotlight on women and men who devote their professional lives to fostering the learning and development of PK-12 students in our region. In addition, the Celebrate Teachers & Teaching now recognizes the 'lifetime achievements' of an individual who through their significant contributions to the field of education have helped close the achievement gap and warrant the respect of educational thought leaders in our community.
