  • About the event

    After four full months of school, we will be taking a night to relax and enjoy a FULL BUFFET of the best food in D.C at The Wicked Bloom on North Capital and kick back with colleagues and like minded professionals. Educators are among some of the most dynamic and amazing people you’ll ever meet! With that being said...come out for great vibes with great people and enjoy being recognized for how truly amazing you are. Educators deserve to party and this will surely be an evening to remember! 

    Why should you sponsor?

    Teaching and working in education for most people is a calling or lifelong journey. Most if not all teachers, beginning teachers and veterans included, are among some of the most underpaid fulltime employees per hours LITERALLY worked. With weekends and post-contractual hours that take up most of a teacher's personal time, the least that our communities can do is to provide educators with celebrations from time to time. Food, networking and an opportunity to feel appreciated and loved goes a long way for people who are one moment away from changing a life as well as battling feelings of defeat and hopelessness which are all parts of the jobs.

    Sometimes, continuing your life's work as a teacher doesn't seem worth the battle. Our hope is that with a little love and enjoyment, teachers will be encouraged and reminded as to why they do what they do. So with that in mind, we thank our teachers, we love our teachers and we celebrate them! 


    GLEN MOURNING

    Glen Leroy Mourning was born on March 26th, 1987 in Danbury Connecticut. As the oldest of his mother's five children, Glen was blessed with the opportunity to lead by example where he would become the first of two generations to not only graduate from high school, but to complete a masters degree.

        In 2005 Glen earned a Full- Athletic Scholarship to attend the University of Connecticut where he would make the "All Big East Conference Academic Honor roll for two years in a row before graduating and attending Grad School at the University of Bridgeport.

         In 2010 Glen finished his masters degree in Elementary Ed. and was named the Student teacher of the year at the University of Bridgeport. Since then, Glen worked along side of the nationally renowned Educational contributor Dr. Steve Perry, Star of the CNN Special "Black in America II" and the host of TV One's "Save our Sons".

        As a 4th and 5th grade teacher at Capital Preparatory Magnet School in Hartford Connecticut, Glen managed to brilliantly inspire the lives of hundreds of students in his tenure as an educator. At the same time, he was the assistant Varsity football coach at Capital Prep Where the team posted an incredible record of 22-2, winning a State play-off appearance before stepping down from his role as defensive backs coach.

        For the past three year, Glen has worked in Washington D.C as a 4th grade teacher . Glen will continue working in Washington, D.C as an educator and community leader. His greatest accomplishments are not those that have occurred on the playing fields across America but rather with his promise to his family that he has kept for the last seven years which was to become the motivation for his students that have come from similar circumstances.
