Alison Domangue, a teacher at the Goddard School in Jackson, has been selected to receive the 2013 Terri Lynne Lokoff/Children’s TYLENOL National Child Care Teacher Award.

Domangue, who will travel to Philadelphia this week for an awards ceremony, is one of 50 child care teachers recognized nationwide for creating an enhancement project that illustrated the educational, social and emotional benefits for the children in their care. She is the second teacher from the Goddard School to receive this award.

Domangue’s award-winning project “I Love Literacy” aims to improve language skills, particularly for children with speech delays. She will receive $500 from the Terri Lynne Lokoff Child Care Foundation to design a print-rich classroom for the project. Features include bins with plastic label holders to improve vocabulary; an expanded classroom library with new furniture; personal boards for drawing and writing; alphabet cards that utilize Braille and sign languages; and new games for identifying letters, developing vocabulary and improving pronunciation.

The ceremony will take place April 11 at 8 p.m. at the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia
