It’s time to nominate your favorite Montclair teacher for the 2012 Judy and Josh Weston Award for Excellence in Teaching. The award is given annually to approximately 15 teachers in the Montclair public school system. The administration of the Weston Award is exclusively by parents. A selection committee of parent representatives from each of the Montclair public schools, along with Judy Weston, selects the award recipients based on the following criteria: creativity, high expectations, energy and concern for students. Winners receive a $2,000 cash award.
Only students, parents and guardians of children currently attending Montclair public schools may submit nominations for the Weston Award. Nomination forms are on the individual school websites and are also available in all the school offices as well as on this website. The deadline for nominations is Wednesday, March 14.
The recipients of the 2012 Judy and Josh Weston Award for Excellence in Teaching will be announced in May. A reception and awards presentation will be held at the public meeting of the Montclair Board of Education on Monday, June 4.
