Two PCPS teachers were recently honored by the Florida Council on Economic Education.

Tamara Opalek from Lewis Anna Woodbury Elementary and Brittany Sampson from Lakeland High both received the Council’s REEL (Regional Economic Educator & Leadership) awards, which recognize “outstanding teachers across Florida who deliver personal finance and economic education in their classrooms each day.”

In addition, the council presented Sampson with one of its highest honors: the Charles C. Harper Economic Educator of the Year Award.

The awards were given in partnership with the University of South Florida’s Gus A. Stavros Center for Free Enterprise and Economic Education.
