What Teachers Make…

“Effective teaching may be the hardest job there is.”- William Glasser

We know this deep in the core of our (apple) hearts.  To help recognize the difference you make in the 11,000 students under our care, this December, TFA-STL is rolling out the HuSTLe award!

Each month’s HuSTLe award winner is recognized for exemplifying one of the Teach For America core values.  You can nominate any alumni teacher in the St. Louis region (even yourself!) for a HuSTLe award.

Winners will receive a gift basket, valued at $50, of their choosing, a feature on the TFA –STL Hub, and the opportunity to become TFAmous in our national community!  Winners will be announced the first week of January 2014.

This month’s HuSTLe award is focused on: Respect and Humility.  This award winner will be chosen based on the following beliefs and actions:

We value the strengths, experiences, and perspectives of others, and we recognize our own limitations. We are committed to partnering effectively with families, schools, and communities to ensure that our work advances the broader good for all children.

Follow this link to nominate a teacher leader for this month’s Respect and Humility HuSTLe award!  The survey is super short so you can do it RIGHT NOW!  If you absolutely have to, remember to nominate someone by Sunday, December 22, 2012.  (Click here for a calendar reminder.)
