Nomination and Application Process
Teachers can be nominated by their district superintendent in consultation with their building principal. Superintendents write a brief nomination statement for that teacher to include in their application materials. Alternatively, teachers can apply directly, and include the nomination letter from their Superintendent as part of their application materials.
All interested teachers must complete 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.
