It’s that time! In November of 2016, we announced our inaugural group of eleven Walking Classroom Ambassadors, selected by us from the many wonderful teachers and out-of-school professionals using our program.
Just two months ago, in March, we offered all of our adopters the opportunity to apply to join this select group. The deadline for applications was May 2, 2017. After reviewing the applications, we have selected seven additional Walking Classroom Ambassadors.
What Makes a Walking Classroom Ambassador?
Our Walking Classroom Ambassadors are special folks. They make it a pleasure to do what we do! How? They exceed our expectations! Those selected as Walking Classroom Ambassadors impress us not only with their dedication to their profession, but also their implementation of The Walking Classroom. They continually inspire us, provide valuable feedback, and encourage us to do our best so that they can better serve those in their care.
Who are These Additional Ambassadors?
Wondering just who makes up these additional Ambassadors? Over the next several months, you will have the opportunity to “meet” these educators in several ways. Those who have been selected will appear on a Walking Classroom Ambassadors page on our website and be profiled as part of a series in our blog in July and August. They will also be highlighted in our monthly newsletter and annual report.
What do They Get?
Being a Walking Classroom Ambassador certainly has its benefits! These go well beyond recognition in electronic and print media. There are material and professional rewards too! In appreciation of their value to The Walking Classroom, Ambassadors will receive an array of Walking Classroom supplies, promotional items, and swag! In addition, they will be able to host a webinar tied to The Walking Classroom. Finally, they can apply to receive material and financial support to present at conferences on behalf of The Walking Classroom. Not bad!
Could You Be Next?
Now you are likely pondering just how you can join this crew! If you are interested in becoming a Walking Classroom Ambassador, (1) keep up the good work and (2) be on the lookout for Ambassador application forms in March of 2018. Who knows? Maybe you will be one of the next group of Walking Classroom Ambassadors selected in May of 2018!
In the meantime, thanks for your ongoing active involvement with The Walking Classroom AND for all you do for your students!
