Distinguished Secondary Teacher Award


Northwestern Seniors,

Please think about a high school teacher who made a difference in your life and take a few minutes to nominate that teacher for the 2023 Morton Schapiro Distinguished Secondary School Teacher Award. The nomination process takes only about the length of a study break but can make a world of difference to a teacher. Former honorees say that “having someone feel that way about what I am doing in my class is amazing”.
