About the Award

The Teacher of the Year Award began in 1997, under the leadership of one of our chamber members, Alberta Muirhead. Discussion surrounded how essential it was to attract, retain and encourage excellent teachers and Ms. Muirhead suggested that the chamber recognize outstanding teachers in our community. Ms. Muirhead’s vision and support, as well as the strong positive response from the education committee and the board of directors, led to the establishment of the Teacher of the Year Award. Nomination forms are available each March and the award ceremony is held each May.

As in past years, the chamber will honor the best PK-2, 3-5, middle and high school teachers with a $1,000 prize presented at an afternoon reception. Over 500 Dearborn students, parents, faculty and community leaders will attend this FREE event at the Ford Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, May 14, 2014 at 4:00pm.
