Robbinsdale Area Schools is accepting nominations for the 2020-21 Teacher of the Year and Education Assistant (EA) of the Year, now through Thursday, Dec. 31, 2020.
“We've always known how important educators are,” said Peter Eckhoff, President of the Robbinsdale Federation of Teachers. “The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified how much they matter, and shown how much they care about the success and well-being of students.”
“In what has been one of the most challenging years for many of us, this recognition gives us one way to celebrate and honor educators in our District,” he continued. “I want to encourage people to nominate their favorite teacher, or favorite educational assistant, for this prestigious award.”
Nominations can be made online via the Robbinsdale Federation of Teachers’ website at rftonline.org.
Students, parents, administrators, colleagues and community members can submit a nomination; self-nominations are also accepted. Teachers need to have taught in Minnesota for three years to be eligible for the award. A panel of teachers, EAs and a School Board member review the submissions and determine the award winners.
