Mary Allan Fellows Award Nominations

Teachers, here is your chance to honor your colleagues for their passion and hard work. The Antioch Schools Education Foundation is accepting nominations for the eleventh annual “Mary Allan Fellows Award” to recognize outstanding teachers who demonstrate innovation and dedication to the teaching profession that is above and beyond the normally high standards of the AUSD. The Fellows who are chosen will receive $1000 for enhancing academics during the 2018-2019 school year and $250 for personal use. Nominees might include, but are not limited to:

  • visionary teachers who have special classroom/school projects in mind, but who do not have the funds to implement or complete the project.
  • innovative teachers who have unique ways of empowering students, and designing curriculum to meet the students’ individual needs.
  • teacher leaders who are dedicated to working with the entire school community (including parents) to bring out the best in students.

Nomination Forms will be available at the end of February in the following locations:

  • AUSD school sites
  • Debra Harrington E-mail: DebraHarrington@antioch.k12.ca.us

Nomination Forms and Letters of Recommendation must be received by Friday, April 20, 2018; return information is on the form. Please spread the word, because nominations can also be made by parents and students.

The entire selection process is meant to be a “Celebration of Teachers.”   Reflect on a colleague who has touched your life in a personal way, and to whom you want to express your appreciation. The Mary Allan Fellows Award Dinner will be September 18 from 5:00-7:00 at the Lone Tree Golf and Event Center. Save the date!
