The Portland Leader is accepting nominations for Educator of the Year, to be presented at the 2017 Portland Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet on Feb. 21.
There are so many deserving teachers, but the winner of this award will clearly be someone who has made a difference beyond what is typically expected of a teacher.
Nominations should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a short essay explaining why this person should win this award. All entries will be carefully considered.
Sometimes the simplest act can make a huge difference to a student and that teacher may never know. Nominations from a parent can and will have weight, along with a peer nomination from the school.
The deadline to nominate for Educator of the Year is 3 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 20. Thank you for helping us to recognize Portland's finest teachers through this process.
