Excellence in Teaching winners announced

November 1, 2018: Damaris Sánchez grew up in a Spanish-speaking household and failed kindergarten because of the language barrier. Having persevered to become a teacher, she passes on to her second-graders a message of resilience and hope.

Daniel Ogilvy, a preschool teacher for 11 of his 18 years in education, landed at the District’s gateway point by chance. Now he scraps to get young learners off on the right foot, driven to create the kind of classroom he would want for his own son.

Skill and passion, molded by perspective and life experience, helped Sánchez and Ogilvy join eight colleagues in winning this year’s Excellence in Teaching Awards. The winners also received $5,000 apiece and will be honored at a gala Nov.15.

This is the third year for the awards, a partnership between the George Gund and Cleveland foundations, the District and the Cleveland Teachers Union. The goal is to spread best practices by honoring teachers who set a standard of excellence and serve as an example for their peers.

Two teams fanned out on the morning of Oct. 2 to surprise nine winners in their classrooms. One whose year-round school was on break got the news at the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library, where she had been invited by her principal on the pretense of having a planning session.
