I was reading UFT paper and noticed the following awards for teachers.
Christopher Columbus Award: Encourages teams of middle school students to use science to improve their communities www.christophercolumbusawards.com
James Madison Memorial Fellowship Foundation: awards fellowships for graduate study of the U.S. Constitution www.jamesmadison.com
Technology grants: HP is giving awards to teams of five teachers from k - 12. Emphasis is on using technology grants.hp.com/us/programs/tech_teaching
(This is the only link I can't get to work)
Teacher of the year: honors exemplary teachers www.teachers.com/toy/toy.asp
Presidential awards for math and science teachers: recognizes exceptional math and science teachers in high school and middle school www.paemst.org
I'm sure we all know overwork, overlooked teachers who should win some of these awards. Let's nominate our deserving colleagues.
