WELCOME TO THE 2018 NATIONAL EXCELLENCE IN TEACHING AWARDS
For 24 years ASG and the NEiTA Foundation have been acknowledging exceptional teachers in early learning centres, primary and secondary schools, and special schools across Australia and New Zealand.
In fact, these teachers aren’t just exceptional professionals. They’re also talented, committed, caring, innovative, passionate and dedicated to their students, schools and the community.
Once again we’re asking YOU, the community to nominate a teacher or teachers who have made a difference. Previous recipients have included a teacher who provided a safe learning space for young learners in the Great Victorian Desert. Another engages visiting artists to provide master classes and workshops for his music students. While Michelle Allen, a 2017 recipient will lead two students representatives to NASA’s space camp in Alabama, USA.
If you know an exceptional teacher; if you’re being taught by someone dedicated and committed or if your children are learning from someone who cares deeply about their education and wellbeing – please nominate them NOW!
