Honor a Teacher Who Made a Difference

Published: Jan 8, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 8, 2013) — Last year nearly 150 educators were recognized by the University of Kentucky College of Education Teachers Who Made a Difference program. The UK College of Education and UK womens’s basketball coach Matthew Mitchell are teaming up to offer the program again in 2013 and currently are accepting submissions.

 

“Teaching is my job, teaching is my passion. And it is something that I love and hope to do the rest of my life,” said Mitchell, the 2013 Teachers Who Made a Difference spokesperson. “It is a tremendous thing to be a teacher.”

 

The Teachers Who Made a Difference program, now in its 15th year, gives individuals an opportunity to thank the teachers, principals, college professors or other educators who have inspired and motivated them to succeed.

 

The program does not select winners from a pool of nominees. Rather, the UK College of Education created the program to provide individuals a means to express thanks to educators who have impacted their lives. Honorees can be from anywhere and do not have to be affiliated with UK; however, the number of honorees to be recognized is limited. Organizers ask that each nominator limit recognitions to one educator per year.

 

To honor an educator, visit the UK College of Education’s website at education.uky.edu/Community/TWMAD and complete the online form or download the printable form to mail in. The deadline for submissions is Feb. 28, 2013.

 

More than 1,700 teachers have been honored since the program’s inception. The Teachers Who Made a Difference program includes a special recognition event and reception attended by both the educators and their nominators.
