Graduate Student in Education Leadership Receives Excellence in Education Award.
Karen Engelkenjohn, a candidate in our first cohort of the COE’s EdD Leadership in Educational Practice program, received the March Excellence in Education Award at the March 2017 Ladue School District Board of Education meeting. Engelkenjohn has been Reed Elementary School’s Gifted Education Teacher since 2005.
“We would need to search far and wide to find a person with as much commitment to student learning as Karen,” Reed Elementary Principal Chris Schreiner has said. “Karen devotes extreme amounts of time both inside and outside of instructional time in order to meet all students’ needs. She is in constant search of learning opportunities that will motivate and inspire students.” Karen utilizes community resources to offer students these experiences; she has partnered with the St. Louis Science Center, Monsanto, and Boeing, just to list a few.”
