Many of us have experienced the powerful impact of a caring teacher—someone who helped us get to where we are today. Someone who taught us to think outside the box, overcome learning and personal challenges, and even perceive ourselves in a new light. Relationships with the best teachers can change the course of our lives.
With our annual Dewey Award, we’re inviting stories of teachers as change-makers in memory of Richard Dewey, a teacher close to our hearts at Charter School Capital. We are dedicated to helping schools provide a nourishing environment for their students, and excellent teachers are at the heart of that effort.
Submit your story by scrolling down and providing your written (minimum of 300 words) or video (minimum 3 minutes) entry. By sharing the story of your change-making teacher, you’ll have the chance to be granted $1,000 to be given in that teacher’s name to the charter school of your choice.
