Educator for a Day

Walden University will award $5,000 grants to three PreK-12 schools that host Educator for a Day events as part of the nationwide celebration of NEA’s American Education Week, observed Nov. 16-22, 2008.  Teachers who want to nominate their schools must complete a nomination form that consists of short essay questions about their profession, the importance of teachers’ duties, why their school should receive a Walden Educator for a Day grant, and what their school would do with the grant. Three schools will be selected by a panel familiar with the issues currently facing teachers and administrators.
