Jamie Droegemeier, math teacher at Spring Hill Middle School (SHMS), was recently awarded a teacher scholarship by the Kansas Association of American Educators (KANAAE), a non-union professional educators’ association serving Kansas teachers. Droegemeier will utilize the scholarship to help to attend a math problem solving conference at Duke University this summer.
“KANAAE is pleased to help in providing an opportunity for Jamie to attend this programming and problem solving conference this summer,” said Garry Sigle, KANAAE executive director.  “It will be the students in Mr. Droegemeier’s classes who will benefit the most by him attending this exceptional conference at Duke University.”
The winners of the KANAAE Teacher Scholarships and Classroom Grants are selected by a committee of their peers from across Kansas.  All educators are encouraged to apply.
KANAAE provides teacher scholarships and classroom grants exclusively for Kansas teachers twice a year.  The grants can help pay for a variety of materials for the classroom and scholarships can be used to cover a wide variety of expenses including tuition, books, conferences, and workshops.
