This month we pause to remember all we’re thankful for. I’m sure you’ve got an amazing teacher you work with who makes that list. Please consider taking a few minutes to nominate a teacher or two (or three or four!) from your school district for the UEA Excellence in Teaching Award. The nomination deadline is Wednesday, Dec. 6, but don’t wait that long! As of right now, few nominations have been received, so the chances of your nominated teacher being selected are very good. Ten winning teachers will each receive a $1,500 cash award and recognition at a special banquet held in their honor next May. Nominating a teacher is easy! Just visit myUEA.org/awards for award details, then complete the online nomination form or print, complete and mail the paper nomination form.
