Nominations are now being accepted for Falls Church City Public Schools’ 2010-2011 Agnes Meyer Outstanding Teacher award, City Schools’ Communications Specialist John Brett reported today.
The annual award is presented by the Washington Post Company Educational Foundation to one teacher in each Northern Virginia school system that instills in students a desire to learn and achieve, understands the individual needs of students and demonstrates a thorough knowledge of subject matter and the ability to share it effectively.
The winner will be recognized at a reception and will receive a $3,000 cash award from the Post. The program’s goals are to recognize excellence in teaching, encourage creative and quality instruction, and contribute to improving education in the Washington metropolitan area.
Anyone can nominate a F.C. City public school teacher for the honor. Additional information criteria and nomination forms are available at www.fccps.org/agnesmeyer.
