There are some amazing teachers out there. "Super Teachers," in fact,and many of them are right here in Virginia. Christina Ross is one of those teachers and that's why she was selected to receive the 2013 Virginia Lottery Super Teacher award.
Ms. Ross received the award today in a surprise presentation at Osbourn Park High School in front of students,faculty and special guests. The award,sponsored by the Virginia Lottery,the Virginia PTA and Virginia-based The Supply Room Companies,consists of a $2,000 cash prize and an additional $2,000 classroom credit from The Supply Room Companies.
Later this fall,each of the eight schools where a winning teacher was honored will participate in a Facebook contest. The public will have the chance to vote for one of those schools to receive $5,000 in classroom supplies from The Supply Room Companies.
This is the sixth year for the Virginia Lottery Super Teacher awards. Each year,the Lottery asks for nominations from all across the state and,this year,nearly 800 nominations were received. Eight teachers are selected -- one from each of eight geographic regions across the state -- to win. Christina Ross is the second public school teacher to receive the Super Teacher Award for 2013. Six more surprise presentations will occur this spring.
"Ms. Ross allows students to apply what they have learned about the political process and serve the community through her "Kids for Kicks" assignment," said nominator and assistant principal Cassandra Crawford. "Students conduct a shoe drive and fundraiser to support needy students at two local elementary schools. Students write press releases,use twitter and other media to spread the word;they create a lesson plan based on second grade civic standards,and then teach it at the elementary schools. Students also reach out to government officials at the various levels,and build relationships with local businesses. Last year more than 350 pairs of shoes and $2,500 were collected."
