Teacher of the Month
After all of our great work with Backpacks4good, we caught the education giving bug and wanted to find a way to support Indiana’s great educators. We opened a program to the Indiana community-at-large to nominate their favorite teachers.
The nominations poured in! We started surprising these great educators with a check for $500, pizza for their classroom, mini-Colts footballs and their picture on a billboard.
To date, we have recognized the efforts of 13 great Indiana educators. To nominate your favorite teacher, fill out the form below.
It was such an honor to surprise Sarah Archer from Chapelwood Elementary School with our Teacher of the Month award for January. Sarah was chosen from a long nominee list of Indiana educators. Our selection committee especially loves the way she creates an inclusive environment by inviting parents who speak different languages to come in and read a book in their native language. P.S. We speak Spanish at HLG! Call us anytime. 😉 Mrs. Archer also makes learning fun by doing activities instead of homework like flashlight reading. Oh, and she’s also married to a teacher making this award extra special. Here’s what the parent who nominated her had to say: “She makes my son excited to go to school every day and encourages him to be a leader in the class…My son is genuinely happy to go back to school after the holiday break because he gets to see his teacher who makes him want to work harder every day and cheers him on to try new challenges.” Congratulations, Mrs. Archer!
