Living in NYC we are lucky to have some of the best teachers instruct our children. They tirelessly give to foster and nurture their development as well as strengthen their emotional and social growth. Many of these unsung heroes go unrecognized - despite the fact that they give so much.
For the past three years, Manhattan Media has honored some of the city's top educators with the Blackboard Awards. This unique awards ceremony honors teachers in a special issue of their community newspapers and at a spring ceremony.
Nominators must fill out a form here and include a brief explanation of why their teacher is special.
Sponsored by Fordham University, the United Federation of Teachers and Glenwood Management, the deadline is 5pm on April 29, 2012. Awards will be presented on June 18, 2012.
