Thank you to Ms. DeBruyn for your contribution to Education in Washington State!

(see original article here)

Excellent educators from both public and private K12 schools are invited to join a Professional Educator Advisory Board (PEAB) to strengthen Washington State’s college and university educational degree programs on behalf of all students in our state.  These people, who are doing great work in school every day, often remain unknown for their extra efforts developing training, content, practices and evaluation materials for the education degree programs on which they are collaborating.

Do you know any of these private school educators who have advocated for student success with the private school educator experience in mind on the following PEABs?

  • Angelica Calcote, Teacher at Bellarmine Preparatory School in Tacoma on the Teacher PEAB at University of Washington, Tacoma
  • Julie Deppa, Director of Culture & People Development at The Bear Creek School in Redmond on the Admin PEAB at Washington State University

The influence of a great educator can never be erased!  If you know of someone who would appreciate the opportunity to gain board experience by advising on a PEAB, please use the WFIS PEAB Recommendation Form (on tab 2 of this page). The PEAB responsibilities and expectations can be found HERE
