Teachers awarded to travel abroad

Four teachers from Orange County Public Schools were selected to receive scholarship awards from the English-Speaking Union, Central Florida Branch.  The teachers are Brett Carrier from Apopka Middle, Cathy Brown from Apopka High, Jenna Kern from Wekiva High, and Emily Levy from Winter Park 9th Grade Center. They were selected to continue their personal education in London, Scotland, and Ireland with the intention of sharing their knowledge and experience with their students. The candidates had to submit an essay along with references, and only top quality candidates were selected for the actual interview. Eight candidates were interviewed, and only five candidates received the all-expense paid scholarships including travel, lodging, tuition, and personal expenses.
