One of the nation’s most extraordinary teachers is right here in South Mississippi at Popp’s Ferry Elementary.
Blakely Fore is one of three teachers in Mississippi and one of 31 in the nation to be selected as an ‘Extraordinary Educator’ by Curriculum Associates.
To be selected for this award, teachers must show growth and achievement through formal assessments and demonstrate classroom innovation and engagement practices for students. “It’s amazing. I know teachers work very hard so we really appreciate to be recognized for all of our successes. Everyone here at Popp’s Ferry are all amazing educators. So, it’s great to see that spotlight actually put on Popp’s Ferry,” said Fore.
All of the teachers who received this award will meet in Boston to share ideas and attend a symposium.
