OAES Teacher Receives OfficeMax Award
Lisa Crowley, a kindergarten teacher at Ocean Avenue Elementary School, received an “A Day Made Better” award from OfficeMax because of her work to provide authentic learning experiences for her students.
The surprise award, given on October 1, includes $1,000 of school supplies from OfficeMax.
According to OfficeMax, teachers spend an average of $1,200 of their own money on classroom supplies each year. That’s why OfficeMax joined with Adopt-A-Classroom to create “A Day Made Better.”
Principals nominate teachers for the award based on their demonstrating dedication, innovation and passion. A thousand awards are given nationwide.
