Nominate a Super Teacher!

Do YOU Know a Super Teacher?
Does your child’s teacher go above and beyond classroom duty to inspire students? Does she lead them to new understanding and knowledge breakthroughs? Does he motivate them to reach higher and achieve their potential?
Answering “yes” to any of these questions means your child may know the most amazing of all super heroes – a Virginia Lottery Super Teacher.
Help us identify and recognize these education heroes!
Between now and February 15, 2016, nominate your child’s Super Teacher at www.vasuperteacher.com. Out of the nominees, eight Virginia educators will be selected in 2016 as Super Teachers, winning $2,000 from the Virginia Lottery and $2,000 in classroom supplies from The Supply Room Companies.
Let’s show our outstanding teachers how super-thankful we are for their hard work. Nominate a Super Teacher today!
