TIME TO NOMINATE
Don’t forget to nominate a teacher (or two!) from your local area to be the Lance P Sijan Teacher of the Year. This is a fantastic way to honor and reward exemplary educators in the community. The due date for Chapter and State Teacher of the Year nominations is April 1. National Teacher of the Year nominations must be submitted by May 31. Please submit all Teacher of the Year materials to AFA Lance P. Sijan Chapter 125, PO Box 15007, Colorado Springs, CO 80935 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find out more about this program, including links to nomination forms as well as the State and National Teacher of the Year program, here.
This year we are excited to announce that the AFA’s Aerospace Education Council has chosen to update the award materials received in this program. The Chapter, State, and National Teachers of the Year will each receive a pin to commemorate their achievement. Chapter Teachers of the Year will now be awarded with an AFA Chapter Teacher of the Year padfolio, which will be useful in the classroom! State Teachers of the Year will continue to receive the popular embroidered windbreakers.
