BETHEL, Conn. -- The Bethel Education Foundation is inviting the community to nominate candidates for the Excellence in Education Award. The deadline is Feb. 26.
The Bethel Education Foundation's Excellence in Education Award recognizes and honors superior educators whose creativity and innovation within the classroom, school, or district have had a significant impact on student performance and provide an ongoing model of excellence in encouraging all learners and educators to excel. These qualities are all aligned with the foundation's mission to promote innovation, creativity and excellence in learning for our children and the community.
Educators are nominated by school administrators, teachers, colleagues, parents, students, and community members. Nomination applications are reviewed by a selection committee comprised of school administrators, teachers, parents, and community members.
The educator selected for this award will be notified when directors from the BEF, school officials, and colleagues visit the educator unannounced to offer congratulations and two tickets to the Barnum Ball. The winner will also be publicly recognized at Bethel Education Foundation's Annual Barnum Ball on March 19 and presented with a commemorative plaque and a $500 grant.
Nominees must be educators and currently employed by a public, private, or parochial school in Bethel.
