Alyson Huges Excellence in Teaching Award
PCMH Proudly recognizes the teacher who exemplifies the understanding, dedication, encouragement and inspiration necessary for ALL children to reach their full potential.
The teacher whose measurement of success does not come in the stroke of a red pen, letter, percentage, but rather in my new found, quiet confidence as I begin to realize my own potential.
The teacher whose actions always speak louder than their words; who understands that, although my best may look different from others’, it is an achievement deserving of equal praise; who proves that my learning ability just comes in a different shaped box.
The teacher who often stand with me, so I do not stand alone; who displays initiative and effort before asking it of anyone else; whose committment to me, helps otherws to acknowledge my capacity and worth.
The teacher who believed in me, until I learned to believe in myself.
To nominate a teacher who exemplifies these qualities and who has made a difference in yours and you child’s life contact email@example.com – Teaching Excellence or
