The combination of motivational speakers, inspirational educators, and the excitement of the College Football Playoff National Championship was a recipe for a successful Extra Yard for Teachers Summit on January 6 in Atlanta, Georgia.
This year marked the second year of School Specialty and SSI Guardian’s presence at the annual College Football Playoff Foundation’s Extra Yard for Teachers Summit, and teachers from Atlanta Public Schools in attendance had a chance to win a 21st Century Safe School makeover.
Each winner’s classroom makeover will include versatile, flexible seating options for students, high-tech tools to support modern teaching methods and goals, basic safety and classroom supplies, and more. Check back on the blog to see updates on and images from the upcoming makeovers as they happen. Keep reading to which names were drawn for the classroom makeovers and to see other images from the event.
