Start the School Year Off Right & Thank a Teacher

Each summer, 200 elementary school teachers are selected to attend the Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy, by applying through Parents and students can nominate a teacher in their lives through the site as well; the teacher receives an e-card letting them know they’ve been nominated to apply for the Academy.

Formed through a partnership with PGA golfer Phil Mickelson, his wife Amy, and ExxonMobil, the week-long, all-expense paid professional development program equips teachers with the tools they need to inspire their students in math and science. From learning about volume through boxes made of origami, to force and motion through dropping an egg into a water glass using a broom (Phil’s favorite experiment!), teachers learn new ways to illustrate science’s basic theories to students.

I highly recommend that you go to the site and recommend a favorite teacher to be selected for this great academy! I know that I am heading there as we speak!
