Lawmaker Seeks Nominations for His First Teacher of the Year Award

Chicago, IL - Today Congressman Dan Lipinski introduced the Teacher of the Year Award. This award acknowledges area teachers for their outstanding dedication and contributions to elementary education.

"We have all had a great teacher; a teacher who pushed us to do our best, who took the extra time to make sure we understood that math problem or finished our term paper," said Lipinski. "This award recognizes these achievements and shows our great appreciation for all that they do for our children."

The Teacher of the Year Award is a fantastic opportunity for students and parents to show their appreciation for local teachers.  School administrators, students, parents and community leaders are invited to nominate an elementary school teacher who they think most deserving of this special honor.

"As an educator myself, I understand the joy and satisfaction of watching your students succeed," Congressman Lipinski stated. "It is important that we acknowledge our local teachers for their continued commitment to preparing our children for the great futures that lie ahead of them."

"One great teacher can truly make a difference in the life of a child," continued Lipinski. "It is important we take the time to say thank you."

Nomination forms for Teacher of the Year Award have been distributed to local schools and are also available by contacting Congressman Lipinski's Office at (312) 886-0481.
