Brownieland Pictures partnered with Atlanta Families’ Awards for Excellence in Education (AFAEE) for another year of honoring exceptional educators. We had the opportunity to meet 7 of the best and brightest educators that Georgia has to offer and to tell their stories, featured in this video.
The Atlanta Families Awards is a yearly event that recognizes educators for their outstanding contributions to the classroom. AFAEE also awards them stipends for projects they have created to enhance the lives of their students. Congratulations to all of the 2018 winners and all of the past winners.
The Atlanta Families’ Awards for Excellence in Education (AFAEE) understands how critical teacher and leader quality is to ensuring that every child receives an excellent education. Educators’ impact and achievements go largely unrecognized and many educators are not fully empowered to support their students. Through recognition, empowerment, and financial support, excellent educators can multiply the impact of their efforts and elevate the quality of public education in Metro Atlanta. AFAEE’s merit-based awards program has a rigorous application process designed to identify educators demonstrating increases in student achievement, enhancement of student self esteem, and collaboration with community stakeholders. In 2015, AFAEE expanded its impact to include five districts in Metro-Atlanta: Atlanta Public Schools, Cobb County Schools, DeKalb County Schools, Fulton County Schools and Gwinnett County Public Schools.
