Nominations sought for Outstanding Educators, Employees for 2022-2023

Many unsung heroes work in our schools, and once a year, community members have the opportunity to honor them for their service.

If you know of a teacher or other staff member who goes out of his or her way to help students and support our schools, consider nominating them for an Outstanding Educator/Employee Award. Nominees will be accepted online only here.

The school district will present the 2022-2023 awards for Outstanding Elementary Educator, Outstanding Secondary Educator and Outstanding Employee later this year. You can nominate candidates for these awards from January 20 through February 26. Nominations can be submitted by parents/guardians, students and colleagues of Penn Manor staff members.

Last year’s honorees were Chip Froelich, the school district’s delivery driver; Wendy Letavic, Penn Manor’s English Learning Development Specialist; and Jenna Fisher, former physical education teacher at Pequea Elementary, who is now an assistant principal at the high school.

The Outstanding Educator Awards should be based on a teacher’s ability to promote academic growth in his/her students and for outstanding pupil-teacher relationships.  A person may nominate one elementary teacher, one secondary teacher or one teacher on each level.  The nominee must currently be employed by Penn Manor School District.

Outstanding Employee Awards should be based on a staff member’s ability to support the educational program and the quality of his/her relationships with staff and students.  A person may nominate one elementary staff member, one secondary staff member or one employee on each level.  The nominee must currently be employed by Penn Manor.

Please note that honorees from previous years are not eligible this year. Here is the list of past nominees. You can make nominations here. Use one form for each nominee.

Here are an explanation of the awards and nomination guidelines.

Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge the hard work of our employees!
