Last Chance! Help Us Find the Philadelphia Region’s Best Teacher

Introducing Philly Mag’s Best Teacher Award.

Know a great teacher? We want to hear about it.

Philly Mag has launched our first-ever Best Teacher Award, dedicated to honoring an outstanding K-8 educator in the Philadelphia region. The winner will receive a $5,000 gift for their school, along with a book donation, both courtesy of Subaru.

Here’s how it works: Between now and May 14th, you can go here to nominate an outstanding K-8 teacher. A group of Philly Mag editors will choose five finalists, then the public will vote to select the grand-prize winner. The Best Teacher will officially be announced this summer.

Finalists will be chosen based on two criteria:

  1. The degree and nature of the nominee’s commitment to their students, school and community
  2. The creativity in teaching style and methods used by the nominee to help uncover and nourish each child’s strength and talents

Nominations are now open. Tell us about someone you think deserves the title of Best Teacher.
