OTIP Teaching Awards nominations now open

Do you know a teacher who demonstrates and inspires excellence in their work? Now is the time to give them the recognition they deserve by nominating them for an OTIP teaching award.

Each year the Ontario Teachers Insurance Plan (OTIP) and the Ontario Teachers’ Federation (OTF) jointly sponsor the OTIP Teaching Awards, to recognize teachers in publicly funded education. There are three categories of awards: elementary school teacher, secondary school teacher and beginning teacher in the first five years of teaching.

A teacher may be nominated by anyone – professional colleagues, students, parents, or the general public.

Nominations are now open for the 2017 awards. The deadline for receipt of nominations is March 31, 2017. Further information is available at www.teachingawards.ca.
