Brandi Adam, an instructional coach and teacher at Red Bank Elementary School, has been named an Extraordinary Educator by Curriculum Associates.
Ms. Adam is among 44 teachers from 26 states and Washington, DC chosen for this national honor that recognizes educators based on their classroom excellence, including their successes during the remote learning period dating back to last March. They were commended for their innovative practices for student engagement and students' growth via formal assessments.
Throughout the year, the educators will have opportunities to share their unique experience and expertise with a nationwide audience of educators by being interviewed on podcasts, contributing blog posts and articles to national publications, participating in virtual events, and more. It is an opportunity to have their successes and inventive ideas celebrated and shared with peers in the profession.
“It goes without saying that this has been an unprecedented school year that has challenged educators, students, and families alike,” said Rob Waldron, CEO of Curriculum Associates. “However, this group of Extraordinary Educators—like so many other educators across the country—has more than risen to the occasion. We are proud to recognize Brandi for her hard work, dedication, and innovative best practices that continue to positively impact the students she serves."
“A student's education is one of the most valuable tools they will ever be given, so instructional decisions should not be based on what someone merely thinks or believes," said Ms. Adam. "Therefore, the use of data to drive instruction is imperative to ensure a quality learning experience."
