Entry Description
Celebrating Indiana's Legacy: Teachers

Indiana teachers play a vital role in the celebration of the Bicentennial. Whether it is instilling the importance of history, cultivating community involvement or simply being an educator, teachers are able to make a difference in the lives of the children they teach.

The Indiana Department of Education is “Celebrating Indiana’s Legacy Teachers” during the Bicentennial year. This statewide program aims to identify, recognize and honor Indiana teachers who come from teaching families. From self-reports and stories, we know there are many current teachers who are third, fourth or even fifth generation educators.

“As we celebrate the 200th year of our statehood, the IDOE would like to honor those teachers who have not only embraced the teaching profession themselves, but have encouraged others to do the same,” said Jenny Berry, Director of DOE’s College and Career Readiness.  “We are excited to support this Bicentennial Legacy Project and look forward to sharing your stories of inspiration!”

This project will help identify legacy teachers and provide recognition for their dedication to Indiana’s children and their profession. This project may also help encourage youth to follow family traditions and become Indiana teachers in the future.
