The purpose of our Outstanding Teacher Awards and Recognition Ceremony is to say thank you to teachers for the outstanding job they do in working with children, and to provide for the community an opportunity to participate in this recognition. Teacher nominees from each participating school are recognized and honored simply by completing Part I of the application (Data Form and Photo). Teacher nominees who compete for the HAABSE Teacher of the Year honor, however, must be a HAABSE member and complete all parts of the application.

Congratulations to the 2017 winners!
