Crellin Elem. Teacher Awarded State Environmental Educator Of The Year
Feb. 11, 2010
Crellin Elementary School teacher Rebecca Sanders was recently named the Chesapeake Bay Trust’s 2010 Environmental Educator of the Year. This award is given to honor outstanding environmental stewards who have made exceptional contributions to improve the health of the environment and the Chesapeake Bay.
“Our work is supported by over 400,000 Marylanders who contribute annually to the trust’s work as a grant-maker either by making donations through the “Treasure the Chesapeake” license plate program and the state’s income tax
check-off program for the bay, or by participating in a funded project,” said Allen Hance, executive director of the Chesapeake Bay Trust.
Each year, the trust recognizes an educator and a student for their work to support the environment and the Chesapeake Bay. Students and teachers from across the state submit applications for the $5,000 awards.
The trust was joined by Lt. Governor Anthony Brown earlier this month to announce Sanders as the winner of its 2010 award. “Selected from a talented pool of nominees, this educator teaches about the bay and the broader watershed through science classes and other parts of the curriculum; uses school grounds and local natural areas to enrich classroom experiences; and motivates and inspires students by promoting environmental awareness throughout the school and the broader community,” noted Hance.
