Jackson Distinguished Teaching Award

The Quaker Foundation is proud to announce the annual Dr. William J. and Mae Hurst Jackson Award for Distinguished Teaching at New Philadelphia City Schools. Funded by the Jackson family, the $5,000.00 award, increased to $6,000 in the 2014-2015 school year, is an annual recognition of and incentive for superior teaching in the district. Eligible teachers must be currently active in the New Philadelphia classroom in grades pre-kindergarten through 12 and must have taught in the New Philadelphia City Schools for five years or more. Award recipients will be eligible for reconsideration after 10 years.

Nominees are reviewed by a committee selected by the Quaker Foundation and are judged on their quality of teaching, impact on students, commitment to the educational process, and pursuit of lifetime learning. The winner will receive the award at the annual Quaker Foundation Recognition Banquet in the spring.
