The award is given twice a year, on Chuck Barranchik’s birthday in May and Margary Barranchik’s birthday in September, to educate students and peers about innovative efforts to promote cultural change. I commend the person.
The latest winners announced on Thursday are:
- Tessa Healy, Wilkinson Elementary School
- Megan Wink, Lake View Elementary
- Michelle Rivas, Gulf Gate Elementary
- Dorothy Leaguer, Macintosh Middle
- Melissa Dweck, Sarasota High
“In our eyes, teachers are superheroes, and this is the way they recognize what they do every day,” said Teri A Hansen, President and CEO of the Barancik Foundation.
Each teacher received a $ 5,000 award for spending on classroom expertise development experience, materials, and equipment. The teachers were surprised at the ceremony at school.
The principal of Sarasota County has nominated one teacher to be eligible for this award. Next, a committee of community leaders identified the best candidates.
Brennan Asplen, director of Sarasota County School, said:
Previous winners have intrigued students’ classrooms by using awards for classroom improvement projects, national professional development workshops, and items such as music and robotics.
Baranciks founded the organization in 2014 to create and fund the areas of education, humanitarian purposes, arts and culture, environment and medical research.
