Golden Schools Foundation has opened up nominations for the second annual Golden Teacher Recognition Awards.
Teachers that demonstrate what the foundation describes as “contagious enthusiasm for teaching and learning,” and regularly inspires and challenges students to reach their potential are being sought.
“These awards really celebrate the teachers that have made a positive impact on the kids in our community, and that’s what the Golden Schools Foundation really tries to encourage,” said foundation spokeswoman Henley.
The eligible schools are Mitchell, Kyffin, Pleasant View, Shelton, Ralston, Welchester, Bell Middle, and Golden High School. Up to four teachers will receive awards, along with recognition in the local press, a $250 award and plaque. Additionally, Golden Schools Foundation will submit all nominations to the Jared Polis Foundation for an additional chance to win the Jared Polis Foundation Teacher’s Award of up to $1,500.
Nominations should include specific and detailed examples of three traits:
1) Innovative and effective teaching methods that demonstrate clear academic results for students.
2) Commitment to their students, going above and beyond official job requirements.
3) The ability to work collaboratively with colleagues to create a positive school environment.
The data/outcome/results of the above traits are also requested.
The nomination should include a short essay describing the teacher, and how they meet the three above criteria. Essays should be between 200 to 800 words. Anyone can nominate. Nominations should include the name, name of school, and position in the school whether that be as a teacher, parent, student or administrator.
Entries are due by March 22, 2013, and can be sent to Suzanne Morrisette, Golden Schools Foundation Board Member, by e-mail at email@example.com, or by mail at 458 White Ash Drive, Golden, CO.
The winners will be announced in May during Teacher Appreciation Week.
