The deadline is approaching for the R.E.B. Awards for Teaching Excellence, a program of the Community Foundation for a Greater Richmond, which recognizes public schoolteachers who distinguish themselves with inspiring classroom performance.

Through a nomination process, approximately 15 outstanding teachers are selected each year to receive cash grants to support professional development activities. Award recipients have earned graduate degrees, climbed mountains, traced their ancestors and met peers from around the world — all to reignite their own passion for learning and to pass it on to their students.

This annual award program includes a cash grant to support the recipient’s professional development and reignite their passion for learning. The deadline for the nomination and letter of support is 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 20.

Eligibility for the award is limited to full-time, classroom teachers in grades K-12 employed by the public school divisions of the city of Richmond, counties of Chesterfield, Hanover, and Henrico, and the Department of Juvenile Justice in these localities. Teachers must have completed a minimum of three years of full-time service. Past winners become eligible at the beginning of the sixth year following their last award.

Also, a teacher cannot be selected as an award finalist more than twice during a five-year period. To learn more and nominate a teacher, visit cfeducators.org.
