This post is brought to you by GOOD with support from University of Phoenix
GOOD and University of Phoenix are excited to report that the nominations have been flooding in for the second annual Great American Teach-Off for teachers in grades K through 12!
Yes, it's getting close to that time where the nomination period ends and voting begins to find one K through 6 and one 7 through 12 teacher to each receive a $10,000 classroom grant. If you know an innovative teacher that has made a positive impact on you, your child, or community, don't forget to nominate him or her (it can even be you) to participate. There are only three questions to answer on the form and the submission period ends February 15 noon PT, so don't be shy, tell us why your favorite teacher deserves a huge gold star!
Whether a teacher has developed a unique curriculum, project idea, or community program, we want to hear all about him or her. Let's recognize teachers going the extra mile to push students to learn and think in different ways so that they can graduate successfully and achieve beyond the classroom.
We'll announce the top 20 nominee finalists on March 4 noon PT. Teachers that go on to the voting period will share videos responding to a short list of questions about their teaching experience, and over the 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 life have positively affected your future and watch profiles of last year's winning teachers, Terry Dougherty and Daryl Bilandzija to get inspired. Again, you have until February 15 noon PT to make your submission count and don't forget to vote starting March 4! Consider The Great American Teach-Off as a way to give your favorite teachers some of the best report cards they've ever had.
