MEA has partnered with Medford School District and OSEA to launch Medford's first teacher recognition program!
The Golden Pear Teacher Recognition Program's mission is to celebrate and honor excellence in teaching for those who are improving the lives of students. Publicly recognizing outstanding teachers elevates the profession of teaching encourages students to think about teaching as a career, and provides the community a sense of investment in their teacher s who are making a positive impact on students' lives every day.
In the same token, there are many other amazing staff supporting and assisting Medford teachers and staff. It takes dedicated and caring individuals to help provide kids with the tools they n eed to graduate and to be lifelong learners. Our Support Staff have an important role in assisting students not only with their academic education, but also in helping them to grow as individuals. A Golden Pear Support Staff Employee is an individual who can inspire and lift students, is respected by those around them, plays an active role in the school or the district, andis a person who tries to make the educational experience a valuable one for students.
One educator from each category will be selected next spring: elementary, middle school, high school, support staff
