The STEAM-Powered fundraiser is scheduled for Thursday, October 28, 2021, and will again be virtual, produced by the award-winning Hamilton Studios. The event is a major fundraiser for the Spokane Public Schools Foundation (SPSF) for its classrooms and schools grants program. Registration information will be available soon here, so watch this space.
The event celebrates our Spokane Public Schools (SPS) students who are engaged in creative and innovative STEAM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Art-Mathematics) learning in our classrooms.
Tickets are available for the price of $55. More information and other details will be provided to you when it becomes available. And be ready for some great auction items to bid on and to help us raise the funds SPSF needs to support our students.
Recognized by the White House as a “Champion of Change”, the Foundation is excited to welcome awarding-winning former classroom educator, instructional coach and speaker Erin Jones as its keynote speaker. Erin received the Most Innovative Foreign Language Teacher award in 2007, while teaching in Tacoma, and was the Washington State Milken Educator of the Year while teaching at Rogers High School in Spokane. She received the Washington State PTA’s “Outstanding Educator” in 2015. After stints in the state’s Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction for two different state superintendents, Erin very narrowly lost a race for the state superintendent position.
She has logged thousands of hours in schools around Washington and she chose to speak and train from her unique personal view on issues of race and equity before schools, government agencies, non-profits and others. You can find Erin on Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, and Instagram. For inquiries, contact email@example.com (for assistant: firstname.lastname@example.org).
