Clubs and Organizations

April 22, 2015

Mr. Keith Schoch, a 6th grade ELA teacher at Bedminster Township School in Bedminster, NJ, has been awarded a classroom grant by the Association of American Educators Foundation to fund his Assessment Techniques course.

"Thanks to AAE, I will have an opportunity to broaden my repertoire of assessment techniques so that I can better gauge student understanding with greater agility and confidence," explained Mr. Schoch. "After all, waiting until the final test to discover that students don't comprehend the subject matter is way too late. This course will benefit my students because when students see the purpose in what they're learning, they invest more completely. Professionally, I have already shared many assessment structures and techniques with my colleagues across multiple grade levels."

The AAEF is committed to offering individual educators the means to optimize student learning with out-of-the-box initiatives. "I applaud the dedication that Keith has demonstrated by trying to improve upon his assessment skills and create purpose for his students," said AAEF Executive Director Gary Beckner. "Without questions, teachers like Keith make AAE scholarships and grants a worthy investment in empowering educators to meet their professional potential!"

The Association of American Educators Foundation is the non-profit charitable arm of the Association of American Educators, a non-union professional organization for teachers across the country.

The AAE Foundation's National Scholarships and Grants competition is held twice a year in the fall and spring and is open to all educators. The deadlines are March 1 and October 1 of every year. For more information about AAEF or the Association of American Educators, visit www.aaeteachers.org.
