Celebrate an educator who sees the bigger picture & purpose of public education.
Tennesseans for Student Success will celebrate each month a passionate educator from every grand division (East, Middle and West Tennessee). Tennessee Student Success Advocates are educators that go above and beyond for their students. Advocacy takes on many forms. Educator advocates can go above and beyond by providing a special learning opportunity, taking the time to help their students with their college and career success or advocating for their students by talking to lawmakers.
The Tennessee Student Success Advocate of the Month program runs during the school year, starting in September to April. Nominations for Tennessee Student Success Advocate of the Month are accepted from the 1-20th of each month. The winner is chosen by the end of each month. Any certified public-school Tennessee education professional is eligible to be nominated. You may not nominate yourself for this award. However, fellow educators and students are highly encouraged to nominate education professionals at their school and in their district. Please answer every question and provide details and examples in order to give your nominee the best opportunity for being named The Tennessee Student Success Advocate of the Month.
The chosen Tennessee Student Success Advocate of the Month will receive:
• Recognition on Tennesseans for Student Success social media pages
• Will receive a special lunch brought to their school and $50 Amazon Gift Card
• An invitation to a Tennessee Student Success Advocate breakfast in May to celebrate their accomplishments (along with additional tickets for guests)
