Nominate Outstanding Teachers For The Big Apple Awards
As in years past, the NYCDOE is recognizing teacher excellence through the fifth annual Big Apple Awards program. You and your school community, including students, families, administrators, teachers, and support staff, are encouraged to nominate current, full-time teachers using this nomination form by December 9; you can also share the nomination link directly with staff members and families. Teachers who have demonstrated exceptional success in their impact on student learning, instructional practices, and professional contributions to your school community should be nominated. District finalists will have the opportunity to interview and/or open up their classrooms to their superintendent teams. Award recipients will spend the 2017–18 school year representing teachers citywide as Big Apple Fellows and members of the Chancellor’s Teacher Advisory Group, while continuing their work in the classroom.
