Columbus Collegiate Academy teacher is teacher of the year
We’d like to extend our congratulations to Jennifer Felbaum, a teacher at Fordham-sponsored Columbus Collegiate Academy in Columbus. Jennifer was the recipient of the Ohio Alliance for Public Charter School’s annual teacher of the year award, a distinction given to just one teacher in Ohio for significant contributions when it comes to advancing student achievement. Columbus Collegiate Executive Director Andy Boy said this of Jennifer:
As a founding member of our team, [she] worked tirelessly to develop curriculum, systems, and procedures that have contributed to the academic success of our students. Our students will excel beyond CCA because of Mrs. Felbaum's efforts. I am honored to work with her and amazed by her ability to reach the students we serve."
Jennifer Felbaum is a founding teacher at Columbus Collegiate Academy, an EPIC gold-gain school. She is in her fourth year of teaching sixth grade reading and writing. During this time, her students have made outstanding progress. Last year her students grew from 52 percent proficient in fifth grade to 86 percent proficient in sixth grade. They also achieved three times the normal growth for a sixth grade class as measured by the NWEA. She has also been awarded the Spotlight Teacher award from EPIC for student growth and achievement.
