Great teachers inspire great learners. In fact, research shows that effective teaching is one of the most significant predictors of a student’s academic success. We reward and recognize the great teachers in the Golden articulation area schools through our annual Teacher Recognition Awards.
Two winning teachers will be awarded $1,000 each to go towards their classroom, a crystal apple, and recognition at their school. They will also be acknowledged in local press/newspapers and among the Golden community. View the map below to see all the winners from past years.
Congratulations to our 2020 Winners!
