Why teach? Five local teachers will answer that question this Wednesday, Feb. 25, during a special storytellers event at 7 p.m. in Kane Hall 220 co-sponsored by the UW College of Education, Seattle Times and 88.5 KPLU.
Among the teachers sharing their personal stories is Marquita Prinzing, who graduated from UW’s Elementary Teacher Education Program in 2010 and is a National Board Certified fourth-grade teacher at Dearborn Park International School in South Seattle.
Lyon Terry, the 2015 Washington state teacher of the year, will emcee the event. Audience members will also have a chance to share their own insights on the rewards and challenges of being a teacher, and a short Q&A session will follow the main program.
The evening begins with an informal welcome reception and light refreshments from 6:30 to 7 p.m. outside Kane Hall Room 220.
Admission is free, but attendees are encouraged to register in advance.
