Tribute to Teachers: Nominate your favorite South Florida teacher

Deadline is Sunday, May 1

Educators are students as well. They learn new teaching techniques and keep up with current events to make their lessons relevant. The really good ones listen to their students’ needs and bring out the very best in them.

We also know teachers are givers. It’s why, with your help, Local 10 wants to honor them through our Tribute to Teachers campaign.

Beginning April 4, Local 10 will shine a light on extraordinary educators in South Florida who make excellence in and outside the classroom a priority.

If you know of a K-12 teacher who’s going above and beyond the call of duty, we want to know about him or her.

Submit a nomination and tell us, in 250 words or less, why your teacher is deserving of recognition. Along with your nomination form, be sure to upload a picture of your teacher.

A panel of judges will review all the entries received and select five extraordinary teachers. The teachers will have their stories of inspiration told on Local 10 News and shared on Local10.com. The honored teachers will also receive a special surprise. Deadline for entries is Sunday, May 1.
