DaVinci Scholars

The DaVinci Institute initiated the DaVinci Scholars program in 2003 in support of our goal to impact the arts, sciences, humanities, and education in Oklahoma through increased partnerships, programming and public awareness that promote critical thinking and creativity.

Each year we honor a special group of Oklahoma teachers by recognizing them as DaVinci Scholars.  These teachers possess a unique set of characteristics.  Each has graduated from an Oklahoma college or university.  Each has chosen to remain in Oklahoma to build a teaching career and is currently employed as a teacher in an Oklahoma public or private P-12 school.  These DaVinci Scholars practice interdisciplinary instructional methods in the classroom, recognize and support the value of multiple intelligences, individual learning styles, and foster creativity and critical thought in students.  A DaVinci Scholar collaborates with peers and parents and understands that learning is not static but rather an ongoing lifelong process.

The following individuals have been recognized this year as 2024 DaVinci Scholars:

Isabelle Esau
