It is now easier than ever to nominate your favorite Dearborn Public Schools teacher to be selected as the 2012-13 Alberta Muirhead Teacher of the Year. The new on-line entry form can be found by visiting http://dearbornschools.org/toy . Forms can also be downloaded at the same website or can be picked up at any Dearborn Public School and the district’s Administration Office, 18700 Audette.
The deadline for submitting nominations, either on-line or hard-copy, is Friday, April 12, 2013. Hard-copy nomination forms can be mailed to the Dearborn Chamber of Commerce, 22100 Michigan Avenue, Dearborn, MI 48124, or fax to (313) 584-9818. Adults may assist students when necessary but no more than two teachers can be nominated per student.
Students can nominate new or veteran teachers whom they feel have made outstanding contributions to the teaching profession. Preschool through fifth-grade students are asked to describe how their teacher has created a classroom where learning is positive and fun. Middle school students (grades 6-8) will need to explain how their teacher connects classroom learning with everyday life. Students in high school must describe how their teacher is preparing them to be successful beyond high school. Applications will be assessed on quality of the nomination, not on the number received. Award judges are members of the Dearborn Chamber Education Committee and are not provided with the teachers’ names.
