Teaching Awards

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.

If I nominate you will it interfere with your camapaign to become UFT President? Won't your feet be tired from stepping over all those people?

Anyway, when you're passing out the no-show jobs, remember who your buddies are. I'm prepared to not show up just about anyplace, for as long as it takes.
