Scholarship and Grant Spotlight: Teachers Attending Rachel's Challenge Summit, from PACE

Professional Association of Colorado Educators, Association of American Educators' state partner in Colorado, awarded ten scholarships for PACE members to attend the Rachel’s Challenge Summit, "Soar to New Heights, Renew Your Mind, and Inspire Your Heart," which starts today, in Denver. The PACE scholarships cover the full fee to attend the event for the ten educators.

The Rachel’s Challenge Summit is in honor of Rachel Joy Scott, the first student killed at Columbine High School. Rachel’s Challenge program started from a tragedy. It has moved from tragedy to triumph through the creation of permanent positive culture changes in schools, businesses, and communities. The ten educators, sponsored by PACE, will be joined by hundreds of K-University teachers, administrators, and teacher support professionals. Attendees will discover how to provide a safe learning environment, develop a classroom atmosphere that builds positive relationships and fosters mutual respect, and learn strategies for addressing bullying, social aggression and harassment.

PACE provides professional development opportunities exclusively for Colorado teachers throughout the year. All Colorado educators are welcome to apply for professional development scholarships. More information can be found at www.coloradoteachers.org.
