Roosevelt Teachers Win National Honor

Joan Kennedy and Patty Nagano, specialist teachers at Roosevelt Elementary School, were selected to receive the Hilda Maehling Award from the National Education Association. Kennedy and Nagano wrote a Learning and Leadership Grant for video cameras and release time so that new teachers and their coaches can watch each other’s classroom lessons. New teachers should be able to learn effective teaching skills more quickly. The two will travel to Washington, D.C. to receive their award.
