Nomination and Application Process
Teachers must first be nominated by their district superintendent in consultation with their building principal. When they have identified one or more teachers to nominate, superintendents write a brief nomination statement for each teacher to include in their application.
The nominated teacher then completes the Armstrong Teacher Educator Award Application.
Approximately ten teachers will be selected. Efforts are made to honor educators from a mix of grade levels and subjects as well as geographical locations. The primary criteria for selection are excellence as a classroom teacher and potential for sharing professional experience with IU teacher education students. We will make every effort to notify all applicants of our selections by early March.
