Teacher Recognition

Edthena Accepting Nominations for New Award for Teachers

Classroom observation platform Edthena has established a new way to celebrate outstanding teachers: its new Teacher Leader Impact Award. The organization is encouraging district-level administrators to nominate a teacher who is “making a measurable impact on others and creating positive lasting change,” according to a press release. One teacher from each U.S. state will receive an award.

District-level administrators will find the nomination form available here. The form is free to fill out and submit, and it includes space for a summary of the nominee’s professional achievements, as well as a longer description of why the nominator feels the teacher deserves to be recognized. Administrators have been requested to submit only one nomination per school district.

Nominations are currently open and will close on Wednesday, April 21, 2021. The winners will be announced during Teacher Appreciation Week (May 3-7). According to the press release, all nominees will receive some form of recognition. One educator per state will receive the 2021 Teacher Leader Impact Award.
