Calling parents: Here’s a chance to honor your favorite teacher


Feel like New York City teachers need a morale boost?

Here’s a chance to show your favorite teachers that you appreciate them, even as they field criticism from cable news anchors and worry about possibly losing their jobs.

Right now, the Blackboard Awards are seeking parent nominations of outstanding teachers and principals. They can be from district, charter, private or parochial schools — you just need to explain why they’re great. The awards program, which is run by the Manhattan Media group, is also surveying parents about their children’s schools to determine which deserve recognition. The winners are honored at a gala in June.

The deadline for suggesting a teacher or principal for the award, or to rave about your school, is this Thursday, March 31. Submit your nominations here.
