Do you know a great teacher?
Then get ready, because the sixth annual Big Apple Awards are here!
The Big Apple Awards is New York City’s teacher recognition program that honors and celebrates educators who go above and beyond for their students and school communities.
Nominating a teacher for the Big Apple Awards is a great way for students, families, teachers, administrators, school staff, and community members to show their appreciation for the great work happening in City classrooms. Please help us recognize and celebrate some of our City’s best teachers by nominating your favorite teachers by Monday, November 27.
To qualify, nominees must be current, full-time public school teachers in City district schools, charter programs, or early childhood education centers who inspire their students, exemplify great teaching, and improve their school communities.
Once this year’s cohort of Big Apple Award recipients are selected and identified in spring 2018, they will each be given the opportunity to participate in the Big Apple Fellowship and represent teachers citywide during monthly meetings as members of the Chancellor’s Teacher Advisory Group during the 2018–19 school year.
To learn more the awards, visit the Big Apple Awards webpage, and check out The Morning Bell’s post regarding last year’s 19 recipients. If you have questions, please email us at TeacherExcellence@schools.nyc.gov.
Remember: this year’s nominations must be submitted by November 27, 2017. So if you have a teacher in mind that you would like considered for a Big Apple Award, submit your nomination TODAY!
