The best teachers stay with us forever.

That’s why we honor them each year at the Salute to Excellence in Education Gala.

The Awards for Teaching Excellence program recognizes educators from around the country who shine in their schools, their communities, and their own learning. These educators advocate for each other, the profession, and students, and they embrace the diversity of their communities and the wider world. Congratulations to this year’s awardees!
