The Milken Educator Awards Forum gathered the 2022 recipients from across the country to network with their new colleagues as well as veteran Milken Educators and other education leaders to discuss how to increase their impact on K-12 education. Activities centered around the forum’s theme of “Elevating Educators” and the support new recipients will receive as members of the national Milken Educator Network of excellence.

A key highlight was learning about the Milken Friends Forever (MFF) mentoring program, in which new Milken Educators benefit from personalized coaching and guidance from a Milken Educator veteran on ways to elevate their instructional practice and take an active role in educational leadership, policy and practice. Recipients also learned how they can strengthen the Milken Educator Network in their states and nationally.

For interviews with Milken Educators about their Forum experience and actions they will take back to their communities, please contact Jana Rausch, vice president of Communications for the Milken Family Foundation, at (310) 570-4774 orjrausch@mff.org.

The 35 2022 Milken Educators were first notified of their Awards at a surprise ceremony at their school before cheering students, appreciative colleagues, dignitaries and media.
