Honor a Teacher Who Made a Difference in Your Life

Published: Feb 13, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 13, 2013) — The University of Kentucky College of Education and UK womens's basketball coach Matthew Mitchell are teaming up again this year to offer the Teachers Who Made a Difference program, and are currently accepting submissions through March 1.

 

Coach Mitchell has a personal respect for the profession, which is why he is serving as the spokesperson for the program again in 2013.

 

“Teaching is my job, teaching is my passion. And it is something that I love and hope to do the rest of my life,” he said. “It is a tremendous thing to be a teacher.”

 

Now in its 15th year, the Teachers Who Made a Difference program 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 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 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 March 1.

 

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.

 

For more information, contact the UK College of Education Office of Advancement by phone at (859) 257-2666.
