The Cortopassi Family Foundation is accepting nominations for its Annual Excellence in Teaching Awards in the areas of Mathematics, Science, and Alternative Education, which come with $5,000 for both the winning teacher and his or her school, the San Joaquin Office of Education has announced.
Awards will be given to two mathematics teachers and two science teachers who teach at a San Joaquin County public or charter high school. The award recognizes distinguished teachers who motivate students to excel, support students in their academic pursuits both in and outside of the classroom, provide leadership in curricular and co-curricular events, encourage students to pursue a career in mathematics and/or science.
One award will be given to a teacher in a noncomprehensive public or charter high school, specifically a school that serves to educate students who have been unsuccessful in the traditional school settings. The awardee will be a distinguished teacher who motivates at-risk students to give their personal best and who inspires students to continue their educations beyond a high school diploma.
Teachers may be nominated only by their current principals. The nomination forms and three recommendation forms should be submitted to the Cortopassi Family Foundation, 11292 N. Alpine Road, Stockton, CA 95212, ATTN: Carla Donaldson, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Application deadline is 5 p.m. Jan. 30.
Past winners are not eligible, but principals are encouraged to reapply on behalf of previous nominees.
