What is the Teachers Who Make Magic Awards program?

The Teachers Who Make Magic program will recognize up to 24 outstanding teachers to receive this prestigious award for their important contribution to society. These teachers become lifetime members of the Teachers Who Make Magic Class.

This year in addition to recognizing outstanding teachers we also recognize one Educational Support Professional in our community. Educational Support Professionals or ESP’s take care of our children every day and make sure they have the tools and resources to succeed in our schools and classrooms. ESP’s include paraprofessionals, secretaries, bus drivers, food service workers, custodial/maintenance workers and security personnel.

Who is eligible?
Nominated teachers must be full-time classroom teachers at a public or non-public school in Central Jersey. For the 2016-2017 school year, teachers must spend the majority of their assignment time teaching students in grades Pre-K –3, Grades 4-8 and 9-12.

How can a teacher be considered for a Teachers Who Make Magic award?
In order to be considered for a Teachers Who Make Magic Award, a teacher must first be nominated by a superintendent, principal, co-worker, or parent.  A teacher may not nominate himself or herself.  The nominating committee will not accept nominations from students.  Nominations may be submitted on the Magic website or via mail. The nomination period will be from December 12, 2016 through March 27, 2017.
