Criteria

The Klingenstein Teacher Award is given to a teacher who is judged by his or her peers to have most successfully transmitted to students the essence of EL Education culture, building exemplary character, driving outstanding academic achievement, and instilling an ethic of “citizen scholarship.” 

The teacher should:

  • Instill in students a desire to learn, take responsibility for their own education and achieve good academic results;
  • Inspire students’ participation in good citizenship in its broader sense, as well as inside the classroom, in the school and as part of the greater community; and
  • Model the value of “We are Crew, not passengers,” in his or her classroom and school.

Prize 

The recipient of the Klingenstein Teacher Award receives:

  • A cash prize of $5,000
  • An invitation to attend the EL Education National Conference, with all expenses paid, to receive the award 
  • An opportunity to present a Master Class at a future National Conference

This award is made possible by the generous support of Lee Klingenstein, Founding Board Chair of EL Education.
