Twice each year, the Kansas colleges and universities that offer teacher preparation programs are invited to select two teacher education students identified as Teachers of Promise to participate in a specific professional learning and recognition opportunity. Nominees are identified by their colleges and universities for showing great potential as future educators.
Central Christian College of Kansas was honored to recognize Elementary Education Majors Kendra Jellison and Melissa Reimer as their Teachers of Promise.
The Teachers of Promise selected each fall are invited to attend a half-day workshop presented by the current Kansas Teacher of the Year Team. During the workshop, the Teachers of Promise have the opportunity to hear and learn from eight exemplary teachers who have a passions for teaching and are excited about working with those who will soon be entering the teaching profession. The Teachers of Promise also are invited to attend the Kansas Teacher of the Year State Awards Banquet.
