Educator awards

Global Educator Badge

The Global Educator Pathway Fellowship supports educators who are the DCPS Equity Framework and SEAD Targets by fostering the development of globally minded educators who can infuse equity and empathy into their classrooms. Fellows will participate in a two-part fellowship, where they will develop their own global competence and gain tools to develop their own globally competent curriculum. In addition to the Global Educator certificate and badging educators who complete the fellowship will will receive professional learning units(PLUs) and special consideration for future global learning opportunities.
