Last Call: Nominate Your Favorite Teacher for the Great American Teach-Off
This post is brought to you by GOOD with support from University of Phoenix
It's almost the end of the nomination period for the 2013 Great American Teach-Off. Have you nominated your favorite teacher yet?
GOOD and University of Phoenix have teamed up to support and celebrate everyday teachers that go beyond the curriculum to find innovative and creative ways to engage students. Don't miss this chance to tell us about your favorite teacher by February 15 noon PT so that he or she gets the opportunity to win a $10,000 classroom grant. It's only three days away until the submission period ends and judging begins to select 20 finalists each in grades K through 6 and 7 through 12, so if you know a teacher that has made a positive impact on you, your child, or community, nominate him or her (it can even be you) to participate.
Let's recognize teachers that are not only changing the lives of their students, but also their community. We want to hear all about the teachers that are integrating technology into the classroom, doing community outreach with their students, or pushing their students to learn and think in different ways so that they can graduate successfully and achieve beyond the classroom. Consider the Great American Teach-Off as a way to give your favorite teachers some of the best report cards they've ever had.
After the top 20 finalists are announced, voting opens on March 4 and in a course of five weeks, the GOOD community will vote for their favorite teacher. At the end of the five weeks, the top voted K through 6 teacher and top voted 7 through 12 teacher will each receive a $10,000 classroom grant.
Think about how the teachers in your community have positively affected their students' futures and watch profiles of last year's winning teachers, Terry Dougherty and Daryl Bilandzija, to get inspired. Remember, you have only until February 15 noon PT to make your nomination count.
