Do you know a local teacher that inspires and engages not only their students, but parents and other educators as well? Well, here is your chance to give them something in return.
Toyota has paired up with The National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) and together they are searching for the best teachers in the nation. Teachers that spark student’s imaginations and help them achieve the greatest success in their educational programs by also exciting parents about getting involved. Not only do these teachers influence the students and parents around them, they provide an example for other educators.
Toyota is offering the winning teacher a $20,000 prize for their school or non-profit program. The NCFL will also give a second prize of $5,000 for the teacher’s meritorious work in the community.
Nominations will be accepted through January 10, 2014. You can use this online form to fill out the teacher nomination of your choice. The winner of the Toyota Family Teacher of the Year Award will then be announced in February at the Families Learning Summit & National Conference on Family Literacy 2014.
Take the time and nominate teachers from around the Los Angeles area who have been exemplary educators to students, parents, and their community.
