UPPER MARLBORO, MD – Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) educators received three of the four 2023 Maryland Educators of Gifted Students (MEGS) MEGGY Awards during the organization’s annual conference on October 20. The awards honor peer-nominated educators for their exemplary contributions to gifted and talented education.

George Milan, teacher at Kenmoor Middle School, was recognized as an outstanding educator in the field of gifted education. Erica Bair, Longfields Elementary School teacher, and JanetViana Clarke-Green, teacher at Benjamin Tasker Middle School, earned their MEGGY awards by creating learning environments that allow their Talented and Gifted (TAG) students to thrive.

“Ensuring that talented students have access to a challenging curriculum is a piece of the equity puzzle that is often overlooked,” said Theresa Jackson, PGCPS TAG Program Supervisor. “I commend the work our MEGGY Award winners are doing in the classroom and I’m proud of their statewide recognition they have received.”

MEGGY Award recipients receive a certificate, monetary award, photograph on the organization’s website and recognition during the annual statewide conference.
