The 2023 Teachers of Promise (TOP) Institute was held this past weekend, and five CEHD students were nominated to attend this prestigious event.
The Teachers of Promise (TOP) Institute was established in 2004 to identify and recognize the best prospective teachers from college and university schools of education across Virginia. The Institute is funded by The Teachers of Promise Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization based in Roanoke, Virginia, and is organized by a team of practicing educators. To date, the Institute has honored more than 3,650 Teachers of Promise from more than three dozen institutions of higher education.
