Oil Patch Bits: Alaska teachers of excellence accepting nominations
BP said Jan. 7 that it is now accepting nominations for the 2019 BP Teachers of Excellence program, which recognizes Alaska teachers’ exceptional work. In addition to honoring teachers for the 24th year, the program is also accepting nominations for unsung heroes in Alaska’s schools, such as principals, counselors, teacher assistants or others.
Each year across Alaska, teachers, community members, spouses, students and others nominate hundreds of teachers who are making a difference and inspiring students. Some are nominated for their kind gestures and ability to listen. Others are nominated for helping their students build award-winning robotics. Whatever the reason, the BP Alaska Teachers of Excellence program has proven there are no shortage of great teachers in Alaska. Do you know a great teacher?
The program honors K-12 teachers and other school staff from public or private schools across Alaska who have made important contributions to education and their communities. BP will select one Teacher of the Year, to be announced at the awards ceremony in May. Educational Allies will also be announced and recognized at the award ceremony.
Since the program’s inception in 1995, BP has recognized 750 Alaska teachers and still receives nearly 1,000 nominations each year. Anyone can nominate a BP Teacher of Excellence or a BP Educational Ally, by visiting BPteachers.com. The deadline for nominations is Feb. 1.
