If you are unsure if the teacher you have in mind is eligible, please refer to the complete list of teachers eligible for this award.

To nominate a teacher, we ask that you complete a Nomination Packet. The Nomination Packet will provide us with an understanding of how the MƒA Master Teacher you are nominating works to influence the broader mathematics or science teaching profession.

  • 1-3 Artifacts of the teacher's influence on the teaching profession
  • Names and contact information of 2 additional colleagues who are willing to serve as professional references for the teacher
Please have ALL required materials ready before advancing to the next page as you will not be able to save your progress. 

Nominations are due May 1, 2018. 

If the teacher you nominate is selected as a finalist, you as well as the references you included will be contacted to take part in phone interviews to learn more about the teacher you nominated. 

Thank you for your willingness to recognize one of the many great teachers across New York City who positively influence the profession of teaching. We are working to recognize teachers as well as improve the public perception of the profession at large. Thank you for working alongside us in these efforts.
