We are excited to announce that Mr. Justin Kaput, SHS Environmental science teacher and SPS 2020 Teacher of the Year, joins 29 other environmental educators selected by The North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE) as part of its first CEE-Change Fellowship cohort. CEE stands for Civics and Environmental Education. He is part of an international community of passionate educators working to build an equitable and sustainable future within the environmental education field through a joint civics and environmental education Community Action Project.
The Class of 2021 sets out to foster leadership within schools and at the community level, promote civic engagement and environmental responsibility, and ultimately build more resilient and healthy communities. Fellows receive networking and professional development opportunities, access to mini-grants to support their projects, and leadership training. This fellowship is supported in part through a cooperative agreement with the US EPA and additional funding from the Cedar Tree Foundation.
