Kansas Exemplary Educators Network (KEEN)
The Kansas State Department of Education has developed a network comprised of individuals from the Kansas Teacher of the Year, Milken Family Foundation Educator Awards Program, Presidential Awards for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching, Kansas Horizon Awards Program, and Nationally Board Certified Teachers, called Kansas Exemplary Educators Network (KEEN).
The KEEN’s mission is to build and utilize a network of exemplary educators who are leaders in the improvement of schools, student performance, and the teaching/education profession.
Annually members of KEEN are invited to professional development opportunities, which address various pertinent education issues. KEEN members also serve on various advisory and selection committees for the Kansas State Department of Education.
