Patience: “Last year we had Barbara Veeck and she was a special education resource teacher at West Homer Elementary, she’s also a West Homer ski program coach. She was recognized for 33 years of education experience and was recognized as the BP teacher of excellence. We have a local community committee that helps choose different nominations from the teachers every year and last year we had five Kenai Peninsula teachers recognized. It varies year to year but each of those teachers wins a $500 gift card their school gets a $500 matching grant.” FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Today is the last day to nominate local teachers for patterns of excellence.
