Massachusetts Educator Receives Award and Starts School with a Stack of New Books

Burlington, MA; October 4, 2011

A fourth grade teacher makes a commitment to global education and is presented an award to support her work.

 Teach India Project  presented the Global Education Professional Development Award to Tara Olshaw in July 2011.  Tara teaches fourth grade at Memorial Elementary School in Burlington, Massachusetts.  She travelled to India on a two week self financed study tour in July 2011 visiting cultural sites, grassroots organizations and schools in North India. 

 The Award of $500 was made to supplement her professional development tour to India this summer so that she could purchase and expand teacher resources for global studies in her classroom.  Tara is particularly interested in literature for elementary levels and used the Award to buy books, posters, printing blocks and many other artifacts for her classroom and school while in India.  Tara says, “The award enabled me to buy books and the benefit will be a stronger and invigorated curriculum about South Asia”. 

Teach India Project, whose website is www.teachindiaproject.org , is a non-profit working to promote global education in the K-12 classroom.  The Teach India Project reaches out through its website, Newsletter, teaching kits and professional development programs.  In coming years the Teach India Project hopes to present many more professional development awards and support educators who want to better their understanding of the world. Contact the Teach India Project if you would like more information about the Award.

Teach India Project is a 501(c) 3 organization.
