(February 19, 2023) - Two Center Grove teachers are among the select few from around the country named 2023 Indiana University Jacobs Educators. Erin Brown, 5th Grade teacher at Sugar Grove Elementary, and Katie Jones, 4th Grade teacher at Maple Grove Elementary, were chosen based on their innovative use of technology in the classroom.

The Annual Jacobs Educator award celebrates outstanding teachers who are at the cutting edge of integrating technology to support problem-based and/or inquiry-learning classrooms. Along with a monetary stipend, Jacobs educators are also asked to provide their expertise to the School of Education through translating research into useable material for teachers, therefore benefiting many more classrooms through their exemplary work.
