Celebrate What’s Right: Teacher Talent

Memphis aspires to make big improvements in public education and prove what is possible through unique solutions. Because talented, experienced teachers in every classroom are key to student success, local leaders in education are working to build our teacher pipeline and keep successful educators in the classroom.

Join us for Celebrate What’s Right: Teacher Talent, in partnership with Chalkbeat Tennessee, on September 10 for a discussion on Memphis’ ability to develop and retain great teachers. Panelists include:

 

Kandi Hill-Clarke, Dean of the College of Education at the University of Memphis
Dr. Carol Johnson-Dean, former Regional Executive Director Program Implementation of New Leaders & newly elected Interim President of LeMoyne-Owen College
Joris Ray, Superintendent of Shelby County Schools
Chris Terrill, Executive Director of Crosstown High
Karen Vogelsang, Former Shelby County School Educator and Tennessee Teacher of the Year
Caroline Bauman, Community Editor of Chalkbeat (moderator)
 

New Memphis will also be honoring the recipients of the Excellence in Education Award at this luncheon. Because we know that great leadership is needed in every corner of our community – from the board room to the classroom – this New Memphis award is meant to highlight distinguished local teachers and school leaders.

 

To help out our local teachers, New Memphis will be accepting donations of reams of paper. Please bring one (or more!) reams to show your appreciation for all that they do for our community!
