Special thanks to Giant Food, the Bartlett Pear Inn and Martini's Restaurant along with Mabel's Bakery for helping TCPS celebrate outstanding teaching and service in a meaningful way.
Each month Giant Food of Easton names a "Giant Teacher of the Month." The store manager and Superintendent Dr. Karen Salmon personally deliver a $100 gift card, flowers and balloons. The TCPS teacher of the month is recognized on the large display board at the front of the store. The program has been in place for 12 years and the Prize Patrol has surprised over 100 teachers!
The Bartlett Pear Inn
The Bartlett Pear Excellence Award began in the Spring of 2010. Each month during the school year Jordan and Alice Lloyd, both TCPS alumni and owners of the Bartlett Pear Inn, treat an outstanding TCPS teacher to dinner for two in the 5 star Bartlett Pear dining room. Each month Dr. Salmon and the Lloyds surprise the winner in their classroom. Dr. Salmon states, "What a wonderful way to acknowledge a 5 star TCPS teacher! It is fantastic to have Jordan and Alice Lloyd helping us celebrate classroom excellence."
Martini's Restaurant and Mabel's Bakery
In the Fall of 2012 Martini's Restaurant teamed up with Mabel's Bakery to honor outstanding support personnel in Talbot County Public Schools. Each month a support staff employee is recognized for their positive attitude and commitment to the TCPS team with a dinner for two gift certificate from Martini's. Kelly Griffith, Assistant Superintendent for Support Services, and Linda Morris, owner of Martini's, personally deliver the award with balloons and cupcakes from Mabel's Bakery.
