ESS Awards Recipients
eLearning Educator of the Year
Avalon Elementary, Val Verde USD
Larissa Barrickman was the first teacher at Avalon to bring and encourage teachers to use blended learning in their classrooms. She started with flipping her classroom for math instruction and soon had the entire fifth grade flipping for math. This year she has GATE classrooms using a self-learning model. We have five televisions in each classroom that our students use with chromebooks for collaboration. She is a technology native who is always researching fun and engaging ways for her students to learn. She is an innovator always looking for new ways to teach and is never afraid to try something new.
CEO, Project Tomorrow
Julie Evans is the CEO of Project Tomorrow, an internationally recognized education nonprofit organization that focuses on improving learning opportunities for students through the effective use of STEM resources.
Throughout her illustrious career, Julie has not only advocated for online and blended learning education, but for the last twelve years, Project Tomorrow has provided valuable data from which we are able to lobby legislators and policy-makers to implement changes supportive of eLearning in education.
She is a champion of non-profit leadership, through her role as CEO of Project Tomorrow, and has served on the ISTE Board of Directors, playing a crucial role in establishing the organization’s future during its recent CEO transition and served as an advisor to CUE and its leadership. Through her leadership, eLearning gets an annual Congressional Briefing, speaking with lawmakers and their staff on Capitol Hill.
