Vroman’s Bookstore is excited to continue our Teacher of the Year tradition! We are now accepting nominations for the 2018-2019 school year! With your help, we want to honor one of our community’s many outstanding teachers by presenting them with the title of Teacher of the Year. Nominate your favorite teacher by telling us why they deserve this award: Have they made a difference in your life? Have they inspired your love of reading? Do they go beyond the call of duty in their job? Do they make learning fun? Whatever the reason, tell us why your teacher deserves this special recognition.
Our previous calls for nominations have produced hundreds of submissions for incredible teachers all over Pasadena and the surrounding areas. Our past winners include:
Daniel Alamo of Huntington Park High School (2017-2018)
Byron Flitsch of Aveson Charter School (2015-2016)
Melinda Burkhardt of Lincoln Elementary in La Crescenta (2016-2017).
We are honored to be able to continue to celebrate and acknowledge the amazing, hard working and passionate teachers in our community.
To nominate: Send us a typed or handwritten essay of 500 words or less. (Must be legible.) Include your name, email, phone number, and address, along with the teacher’s name, and their school information.
Teachers must be school teachers who are currently employed by a school (private or public) in the Pasadena and surrounding areas. Teachers may teach any grade, any subject.
