CAS Send a Teacher to Canada Scholarship
WINNER: Kindra Kilgore, Park Place Middle School, Monroe, WA
The CAS Academic Committee has awarded a WA State Teacher a $300 scholarship to attend the Study in Canada Summer Institute for K-12 Educators, plus a one-year CAS Individual Membership ($40 value).
For more information and curriculum: http://www.k12studycanada.org/scsi.shtml
Here’s what Kindra reports:
“Without a doubt, my experience with the K-12 Study Canada Summer Institute was the most rewarding class I have ever taken. Not only did I leave with more curriculum and lesson plans than I could ever teach in a year, but I had the opportunity to meet some of the most amazing people as well. I couldn’t wait to share my experiences, not only with the staff at my school, but also with my students. I know that I now have the tools to make the study of Canada come alive for them this year. I would recommend this class to anyone that teaches about Canada.”
