Jenna Mobley (one of our Project Learning Garden teachers who also writes as part of the SAGES exemplary teacher group) and Robert Hodgdon (a recent EcoTech grant recipient from CPF) were both recognized at the White House last week for innovation in Environmental Education.
The Presidential Innovation Award for Environmental Educators recognizes outstanding kindergarten through grade 12 teachers who employ innovative approaches to environmental education and use the environment as a context for learning for their students. Up to two teachers from each of EPA’s 10 regions, from different states, will be selected to receive this award. The White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administers this award to honor, support and encourage educators who incorporate environmental education in their classrooms & teaching methods.
