and Times Staff Report
Eight educators from across Kentucky were named “All Stars” as part of the first-annual KET Education All Stars program, including Jessica Kiser of Allen Elementary School.
The KET Education All-Stars program honors educators who exemplify what it means to support student achievement through innovative and engaging use of technology. Those chosen will receive paid registration and travel to the annual KET Multimedia Professional Development Day, scheduled for July 17 at KET’s offices in Lexington. All-Stars will also enjoy opportunities to network and collaborate with the KET Education team throughout the school year.
Kiser, a preschool/Head Start teacher at Allen Elementary, said she first saw the importance of early childhood educators when, as a parent, she witnessed her child’s experience in Head Start.
She became a classroom assistant and furthered her education to become a Preschool/Head Start teacher.
Through her partnership with KET, she continues to search for new and inventive ways to keep her young students engaged through fun, hands-on learning.
For more than 50 years, KET has supported teacher and student success through technology.
Members of the KET Education team work with educators — from preschool to adult education — throughout the year to help make the most of KET resources and others to enhance classroom learning.
