2012 Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy: Nominate a Teacher Today

phil-mickelson-academyAs your kid navigates new classes, think about choosing one outstanding elementary school teacher to attend the 2012 Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy, a one week-long, all-expense paid summer program for professional development in math and science.  The academy was founded by PGA golfer Phil Mickelson, his wife Amy, and the oil and gas company ExxonMobil.  The program was developed by the National Science Teachers Association and Math Solutions.

Every summer, about 100-200 elementary school teachers from around the nation are picked to “go back to school” and learn new, exciting ways to teach kids math and science.  The five-day curriculum was put together by Math Solutions Professional Development and the National Science Teachers Association, and it includes activities, demonstrations, and experiments to help educators motivate their students to love math and science.  The program is open to third to fifth grade teachers. Watch YouTube videos of teachers talking about participating in past programs.

Parents and students can go to SendMyTeacher.com to nominate a teacher for the 2012 program or teachers can also nominate themselves.  The deadline is October 31, 2011.

    One more thing. I think that there are many travel insurance web sites of respected companies that let you enter your vacation details and obtain you the rates. You can also purchase an international travel insurance policy on the net by using your current credit card. Everything you need to do will be to enter your travel details and you can start to see the plans side-by-side. Only find the system that suits your budget and needs and then use your bank credit card to buy the item. Travel insurance online is a good way to check for a reputable company pertaining to international travel cover. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
