Eight educators from across Kentucky have been named “All Stars” as part of the first-annual KET Education All Stars program, including one local educator.
Dee Dee Webb, district technology integration specialist for Grayson County Schools, was one of the eight who received honors.
"Dee Dee has exemplified the role of technology use in the classroom—whether through her work as a classroom teacher, media specialist, technology coordinator, STLP sponsor, or technology integration specialist," said a statement from KET. "She regularly shares KET’s resources when she provides training on integration, differentiation, and self-paced learning opportunities for teachers and students in her district. And she likewise shares her knowledge at various statewide learning events, including KET Multimedia Day and KET EdCamp."
The KET Education All Stars program salutes educators who exemplify what it means to support student achievement through innovative and engaging use of technology. Those chosen will receive paid registration and travel to the annual KET Multimedia Professional Development Day, scheduled for July 17 at KET’s offices in Lexington. All Stars also enjoy opportunities to network and collaborate with the KET Education team throughout the school year.
Also receiving the awards were: Jessica Kiser, preschool/Head Start teacher at Allen Elementary (Floyd County Schools), Sam Northern, library media specialist at Simpson Elementary (Simpson County Schools), Janet Lanham, media services resource librarian (Jefferson County Public Schools), Emily Northcutt, library media specialist at Hearn Elementary (Franklin County Schools), Letitia Rudie, library media specialist at Catlettsburg Elementary and Summit Elementary (Boyd County Schools), Candace Nickles, library media specialist at Beaver Creek Elementary (Knott County Schools), and Diane Kelley, director of Hardin County Skills U Adult Education Center.
Dee Dee, her husband Joey Webb, who is an educator at ECMS, and their two children, reside in Edmonson County.
