Review for PDK International, Inc., Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a lifetime member of PDK, I have had wonderful opportunities to be involved at various levels. Phi Delta Kappa is three organizations under one umbrella, Phi Delta Kappa International (PDK), Pi Lambda Theta (PLT), and Educators Rising. Currently, I am on the task force for both PDK and PLT, and I see firsthand the incredible work that the PDK staff, board, and volunteers do to help educators at all levels. For instance, we have over 44,000 students in high school and the first years of college who belong to Educators Rising. PDK is helping those beginners have a deeper understanding of our profession. In June, we will have the Educators Rising Conference where these students will present their best lessons, research papers, and so forth. Last year, approximately 1,000 students and teacher leaders attended this conference.

Next week, I will attend a chapter dinner and silent auction where we will honor graduating seniors with scholarships to help them in their first teaching position. Three weeks ago, another chapter I am affiliated with recognized a member who had been active for 61 years. In addition, the chapter gave a $1,500 award to a doctoral student at the University of Houston and a $500 scholarship to an undergraduate who is pursing a degree in education.

These are a few examples that show the outstanding work that PDK is doing and explains why I am so proud to be a member of this prestigious organization.
