To honor the late Margery Barancik’s career as an educator, the Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation has launched the TIME Fellowship Program (Time to Inspire Margie’s Educators). The program will provide as many as 25 awards to Sarasota County educators, each totaling up to $12,000. The goal of the program is to help rejuvenate teachers' own curiosity and deepen personal and professional development.
The Foundation is inviting current Sarasota County School District K-12 public school teachers, assistant principals, and principals who have at least three years’ experience working at the district to apply to the program. The projects proposed should seek to creatively expand an educator’s experiences through intellectual and physical journeys that are of a unique quality and provide opportunities for personal fulfillment that might otherwise not be available to them.
Applicants need to prove their status as a current classroom teacher, principal or assistant principal with at least three years’ experience teaching in Sarasota County public schools. Selected applicants must affirm their intention to continue teaching in Sarasota County Schools for the next three years after project completion. All projects must be completed when school is out of session. The deadline to apply is Sunday, March 20, 2022. To learn more, click here.
