Nominations open for 2024 Toyota Family Teacher of the Year

It’s Teacher Appreciation Week across the U.S. and the National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) is celebrating with the opening of our call for nominations to find this year’s Toyota Family Teacher of the Year. For 28 years, NCFL and Toyota have partnered to recognize educators from across the nation who use a strong multi-generational approach to learning and focus on building effective family-school partnerships that support student achievement and school improvement.

The educator selected as Toyota Family Teacher of the Year will receive a $20,000 grant to further ongoing family engagement efforts. One runner-up will receive $5,000. The winner and runner-up will be officially announced in Louisville, Kentucky on November 20th during the 2024 Families Learning Conference, NCFL’s premier convening of family learning educators, practitioners, researchers, and community-based organizations. 

Since 1997, Toyota Family Teacher of the Year winners, runners-up, and their respective organizations have received $700,000 and funded 56 innovative teacher-led projects. For a full list of past winners, visit NCFL’s website.
