Do you know a teacher who has made a positive difference in the lives of many students or made all the difference in the life of a single student?
Maybe you are a student or the parent of a student whose teacher consistently goes the extra mile to make learning meaningful, effective, interesting and enjoyable.
If so, you know a teacher who is an ideal candidate for the Mid Rivers Newsmagazine Teacher of the Year award – and we would like to hear from you.
Created to recognize excellence in education, the Teacher of the Year award is presented annually to one area teacher who has made a positive difference in the life of a student in the community, young or old. Eligible teachers include preschool, elementary school, high school and college/university teachers in the Mid Rivers Newsmagazine/St. Charles County mailing area. Nominations are open to educators at both public and private schools.
Nominating a teacher for the award is easy. Simply explain in 200 or fewer words why you believe a teacher should be recognized as the St. Charles County Teacher of the Year.
Submissions should outline specific experiences or special qualities that make the nominee an outstanding teacher. Submit your nomination online at midriversnewsmagazine.com.
Entries will be reviewed by a panel of judges representing the Teacher of the Year program sponsors, which in addition to Mid Rivers Newsmagazine include Bone & Joint Chiropractic Center, Busey Bank-O’Fallon, Dream Play and Sylvan Learning Center.
The winning teacher will receive a new iPad, gift certificates, flowers, a cake and a school celebration as well as recognition in a future issue of Mid Rivers Newsmagazine.
Help us applaud a deserving teacher, and submit your nomination by Monday, April 9. All entries will become the property of Mid Rivers Newsmagazine.
