T eachers can make a real difference in a child’s life. But often, their hard work goes unrecognized. So the Grizzlies, in partnership with Ashley Furniture HomeStore, are saluting teachers this school year with the Educator of the Month award.
The award, which the sports organization began giving out in November, comes from student nominations. Just have your child go to nba.com/grizzlies/community/teacher_of_the_month.html, fill out the nomination form, and write an essay about how his or her teacher inspires them to succeed. (Note: Nominations must be for the teacher whose class your child is currently enrolled in.)
Nominations will be accepted until March 31st. The winning teacher and student receive two tickets to a Grizzlies game, where they are recognized, and are featured on grizzlies.com. Each teacher also receives a $500 gift card from Ashley Furniture HomeStore; students get a Grizzlies prize pack. • Send your nomination to: Memphis Grizzlies, Attention: Educator of the Month, 191 Beale St., Memphis, TN 38103
