Edward T. Ventura Jr., the technology teacher at Castelar Elementary and Omaha Education Association Vice-President of Member Benefits, can’t wait to start using the new Apple Watch he won from Horace Mann’s Teacher Appreciation Week giveaway. Celebrating 70 years of focusing on the financial needs of teachers, Horace Mann gave out 25 Smartwatches and funded $10,000 in DonorsChoose.org projects.“I will be looking for ways to use my new watch in my classroom. I will get professional development from Twitter PLC and my tech-savvy son,” said Ventura.
He is very thankful to Dick Wollman, our local Horace Mann agent, for promoting the company at his school, at OEA meetings and events and Nebraska State Education Association events.
Ventura is one of 25 Apple Smartwatch winners. Horace Mann also offered educators a chance to win funding through its “DonorsChoose.org $10K giveaway.”
