1 October Is there an Omaha Public Schools teacher who deserves recognition? October 1, 2020 By Layne Gabriel Announcements, Awards and Recognitions Teacher Recognition A great teacher can turn a geography lesson into an exciting adventure or make a conversation become a life lesson. And the Omaha Public Schools community is fortunate to have so many great teachers. It’s why the Alice Buffett Outstanding Teacher Award was created more than 30 years ago — to recognize those teachers who have gone above and beyond to help their students in the classroom and in life. Nominate an OPS teacher for this award and tell us what he or she has done that has made a difference. Submit your nomination by January 15, 2021. This year, we’d also like to recognize the extraordinary efforts of educators within Omaha Public Schools. This unprecedented period has been full of technological, logistical and personal challenges, any one of which would have been difficult to overcome on its own. However, not only did OPS teachers meet these issues head on, they did so with an unwavering spirit and passionate dedication to their students. For that, we offer our heartfelt gratitude and recognition of those educators who have persevered while enduring so much in such a short amount of time. Comments are closed.
