2021 Educators of Excellence Award Nomination

New Memphis knows that great leadership is needed in every corner of our community — from the board room to the classroom. Educators are essential leaders in our community as their impact and investment is critical to our city’s future success. At New Memphis, we believe it is paramount to recognize the contribution of our best educators, to learn from their experiences, and to support them in their growth. To recognize and celebrate the outstanding work of exceptional educators, we launched the New Memphis Educators of Excellence Awards in 2018. We encourage you to join in our efforts by nominating an educator below.  The whole city needs to hear their stories – why they are driven to teach, the sacrifices they make to be excellent for our kids, and how they approach classrooms and schools with innovative, resilient spirits. With your help, we can appreciate great teachers and help Memphis retain great educators in our community.
