Rising Educators Earn Gold


Milford High School’s Educators Rising Chapter rose to the challenge by bringing home many medals and coveted bells for their success at Educators Rising State Competitive Events held in February at Delaware State University. This rookie chapter proved themselves at the organization’s spring award conference held on March 6, 2018.

“Milford High School is so honored to have these members be a part of the Buccaneer Family and cannot wait to see where their passion for education leads them,” said Molly Chorman, Teacher Academy Instructor that serves as the advisor for this Educators Rising Chapter.

Fourteen members competed in ten overall categories, four of these categories being a partner challenge. Members gave presentations on their job shadowing experiences of Milford School District behavior specialists, counselors, and administrators, as well as presentations on research-based ideas for accommodating students with dyslexia. Two students visited a Mispillion Elementary classroom where flexible seating promoted higher-level learning and showcased this educational initiative. Two teams both authored and illustrated children’s picture books centered around social and emotional themes, while another member competed in job application and interview skills. A final competitive event included a member presenting ideas on promoting academic equity for students living in poverty in a Ted Talk format.

These 14 members rose to the challenge and conveyed their passion for education by bringing home ten gold, one silver, and one bronze medal. Even more, seven of these members scored not only a gold medal but also received the coveted Educators Rising bell indicating that they were the highest scoring competitor in their event across the state.
