Meet the Cluster’s Award-Winning Teachers!
Stuart-Hobson’s reading intervention teacher, Beth Dewhurst, was surprised in her classroom on December 19, 2016, by Superintendent Kang, who recognized her as the District’s 2017 Teacher of the Year. Ms. Dewhurst was selected for increasing skill levels through her unique reading intervention courses and her efforts to build literacy school-wide. She will now represent the District in the National Teacher of the Year competition. Congratulations, Ms. Dewhurst!
On Tuesday, January 24th, the DC Public Education Fund surprised Ms. Ann Brogioli – social worker and girls basketball coach at Watkins Elementary School – with the Standing Ovation Award for Excellence in Service. Ms. Brogioli will be officially recognized at DCPS’s Standing Ovation event in March.
Standing Ovation honors eight Excellence Award winners each year on stage at the Kennedy Center. These five individuals and three school communities are celebrated through a star-studded awards show featuring video tributes and live performances. And, each winner takes home a cash bonus between $10,000 and $25,000! Check out this site to learn more: Standing Ovation 2017.
