Thank you for your interest in applying to participate in Classroom Champions for the 2017-18 school year -- a Winter Olympics year! Classroom Champions partners with K-8 public school teachers to match their classroom with an Olympian or Paralympian Mentor for year-long virtual mentorship. We focus on monthly lessons like goal setting, perseverance, teamwork, and community involvement.
Participating teachers receive donated technology, and our education team will help you learn about social and emotional learning, growth mindset, and creating a strong classroom climate; will provide you with planning resources for project based learning; and will welcome you into our continent-wide Professional Learning Network. The cost of participating in Classroom Champions is incurred by individual, corporate, and foundation donors or by district partners.
We have begun selecting teachers for the 2017-18 school year, however; we are continuing to accept applications in case any teachers in the cohort move schools or assignments and a spot opens up.
We know that we will have open spots for teachers in:
SE Saskatchewan, Ponoka, Longview/Black Diamond, Hudson's Hope, Fort St. John, and Victoria (list updated September 1).
