DaVinci A+ Teachers
The DaVinci institute is Oklahoma’s Creativity Think Tank–promoting a statewide creative renaissance through lectures, professional development, research and advocacy. The first project of the DaVinci Institute became what is now Oklahoma A+ Schools Institute at UCO. Through a long-standing relationship, DaVinci values the work of OKA+ and since 2010 has recognized an outstanding educator in an OKA+ Schools’ Network school. Through principal nomination and application, a teacher who exemplifies the A+ Essentials through their classroom instruction, leadership, and general education philosophy, is chosen to be the DaVinci A+ Teacher of the Year.
