Littleton Public Schools Teacher Cadet student Courtney Brown was selected for the Colorado Department of Higher Education’s (CDHE) Future Educator Honor Roll and was acknowledged at a ceremony at the state capitol on Wednesday, May 2 from 10 a.m. to noon.
In celebration of Teacher Appreciation week, the ceremony recognized outstanding students from Colorado’s educator preparation programs. CDHE Executive Director Dr. Kim Hunter Reed gave remarks beginning at 10:15 a.m. in the West Lobby of the capitol, followed by Lt. Gov. Donna Lynne.
Courtney Brown was nominated by Littleton Public Schools Teacher Cadet Instructor, Laura Alsdorf, who said, “She truly is one of the best and brightest who will make a top quality teacher with her creativity, talent, love for children and her deep belief system rooted in the value and equality of all people.
“This ceremony recognizes the tremendous impact our future educators will have on their students and the state of Colorado broadly,” said Dr. Reed. “Educators are training the next generation of artists, engineers, scientists and health professionals that will power our economy and enliven our communities. They truly make all other professions possible. We want all teachers and administrators—and especially our young educators—to know Coloradans support and appreciate their invaluable work.”
