Mrs. Sachiko Green, fifth-grade teacher at Pelham Oaks Elementary School, has been selected for Curriculum Associates' Inaugural Class of Extraordinary Educators. Mrs. Green is one of two Alabama teachers— and among a total of 31 teachers nationwide —to be selected for the program.

Mrs. Green was selected for best-in-class use of the i-Ready and/or Ready program in her classroom, illustrating growth and achievement via formal assessments, and demonstrating classroom innovation and engagement practices for students. 

“I am truly honored to be chosen as an Extraordinary Educator by Curriculum Associates,” said Green. “Curriculum Associates' research-based differentiated instruction ensures every child is challenged to grow through the content. This personalized approach has allowed every one of my students to engage in rigorous instruction while supporting me to become a more effective educator.”

As part of the Extraordinary Educators program, Mrs. Green will receive unique professional development opportunities and have access to a network of peers from around the country to collaborate, connect, and learn from throughout the course of the year. Mrs. Green and fellow program participants will also be invited to attend and present at the two-day Extraordinary Educators Leadership Summit in the summer of 2020.
