Nomination Forms Now Available
Considering the Coronavirus epidemic, our teachers have been asked to go above and beyond – teaching their lessons via the internet, where they otherwise would be face-to-face with students. We, along with our members and local business community, recognize the importance of education in a classroom setting, and admire the dedication of our educators’ abilities to adapt in such a turbulent time.
The Taunton Area Chamber of Commerce would like to commend our local teachers and encourage you to submit your nominations online by filling out the Teacher Nomination Form below, or download the nomination packet.
The TACC will acknowledge these extraordinary teachers during our 28th Annual Teacher Recognition and Scholarship Awards Event on Wednesday, May 19, 2021 via Zoom. Register here to attend.
Students pursuing a career in business or a related industry can apply for the Charles E. Volkmann Scholarship, which will also be awarded at the breakfast. Download the scholarship application here or submit online below.
Eligibility: Individual teachers (not teams) in grades K-12 in Raynham, Berkley, Dighton and Taunton (including Bristol-Plymouth Regional Technical School and Bristol County Agricultural High School) are eligible for Recognition Awards. Any teacher actively teaching and employed full time may be nominated and is eligible to receive recognition for outstanding effort, which has benefited their students. (See the Honor Roll list.)
Criteria: The key factor in nominations is describing the outstanding qualities that make an individual an extraordinary educator. When completing the nomination form, be sure to address the specific criteria presented.
PLEASE NOTE: The Autobiography MUST BE COMPLETED BY THE TEACHER and submitted to the TACC by the deadline. Please include the teacher's email address so that we can request the information, or download the autobiography form here.
Signed nominations must be received by 4:00 p.m. on April 30, 2021.
