2010 Teacher Winner
School: William J. Scott Elementary School, First Grade
Project: College Bound Academic Incentive & Recognition Program
With the desire to prepare Scott Elementary students for college, Mrs. Quackenbush will reward children from all grade levels who strive for academic excellence. To honor students for their positive actions and behavior (such as high attendance, hard work and homework completion), Mrs. Quackenbush will encourage their continued success with monthly and quarterly awards. Students will receive college paraphernalia and incentives for their achievements. Culminating with a college fair and field trip to a local university, students will be exposed to the idea and experiences of preparing for later educational opportunities.
