Teacher Feature - Reisha Caldwell

Behind every great student is a great teacher. These teachers make learning fun by thinking outside the box and creating classroom experiences that resonate with their students. They serve many roles in their schools, as spelling coaches, school bee coordinators and judges; more often than not, they are motivators who encourage their students to be the best they can be. In the “Teacher Feature,” we celebrate these educators and their commitment to their students' education.

Local sponsors are the lifeblood of the Scripps National Spelling Bee. They are media outlets, universities, businesses and community organizations that work with the Bee to support schools in their local area. These organizations work with teachers and administrators to ensure school bees run smoothly, put the necessary time and effort into running final local bees, and act as a resource for national finalists and their families in the weeks leading up to Bee Week.

Enrollment Opens for Schools Across the Nation

It's that time again: Teachers are preparing for the first week of class, families are taking one last vacation before the school year starts up, and here at the Bee the enrollment season has begun for schools across the United States.

The 2014-15 Bee season ended with a truly inspiring moment as Vanya Shivashankar and Gokul Venkatachalam became only the fifth pair of co-champions in the Scripps National Spelling Bee's history! It was also the very first time in the Bee's 88-year run that co-champions had been declared in back-to-back years.
