Spalding Award winner
Rebekah Seelow earned the Lyle Spalding Award for Leadership in Educational Technology. Rebekah is married to Adam Seelow and they have three children: Greta, Henry, and Gabriel.

ROSCOMMON – The COOR ISD Lyle Spalding Award for Leadership in Educational Technology was presented at the COOR ISD Board of Education meeting earlier this year. 

Lyle Spalding was a former Superintendent of COOR ISD from 1990-1999 who recognized the importance of technology to enhance education. Nominations for this award are sought throughout all educational entities within the COOR ISD service area.

The 2021 award recipient is Rebekah Seelow, Early Childhood Specialist with COOR Intermediate School District. Early Childhood Supervisor Katie Keith nominated Seelow and commended her on the enormous task of creating and implementing a Google Classroom used by 19 rooms for 70 users. 

Additionally, Seelow worked with the Michigan Department of Education to create the website which provides one-stop access to support early childhood specialists assigned to Great Start Readiness programs across the state. She was chosen for her innovative use of technology to enhance learning for students and parents, and developed resources for parents to better understand the digital platforms that schools used during remote learning when schools closed for the COVID-19 pandemic.

COOR President Mangutz  said, “This year wouldn’t have gone as smoothly as it did through the pandemic without the dedicated staff members throughout our ISD who put in extra efforts.”
