FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
JOHN V. LINDSAY WILDCAT ACADEMY CHARTER SCHOOL TEACHER IS HONORED
Anthony Brown of the John V. Lindsay Wildcat Academy Charter School was inducted this year as a Fellow into The Academy for Teachers and selected to participate in a chemistry Master Class with Nobel laureate Roald Hoffmann. The class was hosted by The New York Hall of Science.
The Academy for Teachers Master Classes bring exceptional teachers together with leading intellectuals, scientists, and creative artists for a day of high-level instruction and inspiration. They are hosted by the city’s great institutions, which join The Academy in demonstrating that teachers deserve the time and attention of our culture’s best and brightest.
“Only 18 teachers are chosen for each Master Class,” said Sam Swope, president of The Academy for Teachers. “Being selected is a well-deserved honor for both teacher and school.”
Teachers invited to attend Master Classes exhibit passion for their subjects, creativity in their classrooms, and devotion to their students. Educators often describe Master Classes as one of the highlights of their careers. Mr. Brown said his class was “extremely worthwhile” and that “Dr. Hoffman was truly inspiring and renewed my efforts to teach through storytelling.”
TOP 10 REASONS TO JOIN JVL WILDCAT'S PTO:
1. It’s good for your child. Research shows that children whose parents are involved in their school make better grades and have fewer disciplinary problems at school. When parents get plugged in at school, their children do better.
2. It’s important to the school. PTO provides support to teachers and administrators, and creates a caring and supportive atmosphere in the school. With all of the budget cuts, schools are becoming more and more dependent on parent groups.
