The Great Falls Public Schools Foundation today announced the names of 33 teachers nominated by area students as Excellence in Education honorees.
From this year’s honorees, an independent panel of local business and education leaders will select two educators to receive the distinguished Teacher of the Year Award, sponsored this year by BNSF Railway.
Teacher of the Year winners will be announced in May.
Thanks to BNSF Railway, each Teacher of the Year will receive $2,500 to use toward continuing education or classroom supplies or equipment.
“BNSF Railway is extremely proud of all 33 of this year’s honorees, and we thank all the students who nominated them,” said Matt Jones, Regional Public Affairs Director for BNSF Railway. “BNSF takes great pride in honoring the people who are committed to Montana’s students, and we look forward to seeing who the Great Falls Public Schools Foundation selects as Teachers of the Year.”
“The Great Falls Public Schools Foundation takes great pride in all educators, achievers and scholars in this community, and we are especially pleased to highlight those who excel in education,” said Dave Crum, Executive Director of the Great Falls Public Schools Association.
