Do you know an exceptional elementary or high school teacher? CBC Ottawa wants to take a moment to recognize the incredible educators who are making a difference.

Help us shine a light on an educator making a difference

(CBC Ottawa)

Despite the challenges of COVID-19, schools are now in session across Ottawa. CBC Ottawa wants to take a moment to recognize the incredible educators who are making that possible, for both in-person and virtual learning.

Our ongoing news coverage will continue to keep you updated on the important school-related stories, but we'd also like to hear about the teachers close to home. 

Do you know an exceptional elementary or high school teacher who is making a difference? Whether it's in the life of one child or a whole school, no act of kindness is too small. 

You can submit on behalf of your child's current or former teacher, a colleague, family member or friend. We want to acknowledge anyone who is doing incredible things in spite of, or because of, the challenges presented by the pandemic.

Fill out the form below to tell us more about your 'Featured Teacher.' It will only take a few minutes!

Or email us at ottawainthecommunity@cbc.ca. Be sure to include your teacher's name, the school where they teach, and how they are making a difference. *If chosen, we will contact you to submit a photo of your featured teacher.

If selected, your submission could appear on the CBC Ottawa website and on our social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter), as well as in the CBC Ottawa community newsletter, The Highlight

Nominations are now closed. We will announce the teachers in the upcoming weeks. 

Add some “good” to your morning and evening.

A variety of newsletters you'll love, delivered straight to you.
