The DOE is recognizing teacher excellence through the sixth annual Big Apple Awards program. You and your school community (e.g., students, families, administrators, support staff, and teachers) are encouraged to nominate current, full-time teachers who have demonstrated exceptional success in their impact on student learning, instructional practices, and professional contributions to their school community. Nominations are due by November 27. You should consider nominating outstanding teachers in your school, and share this nomination link with colleagues and community members. Note that applicants who advance to the finalist round will have the opportunity to interview and/or open their classrooms to their superintendent teams. Award recipients will be recognized as exemplary educators, and will spend the 2018–19 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.
During the 2016–17 school year, three-quarters of DOE schools nominated at least one teacher for the Big Apple Awards; this year’s goal is to receive at least one nomination from each school and increase the number of high-quality teachers advancing to the next round. For more information about the Big Apple Awards, the selection process, and past recipients, please visit the Big Apple Awards website.
