The U.S. Department of Education plans to honor outstanding classroom teachers through the American Stars of Teaching program. The Department's Teacher-to-Teacher Initiative is seeking nominations and information about teachers improving student achievement, using innovative strategies in the classroom and making a difference in the lives of students. Teachers across all grade levels and disciplines will be honored this fall as 2006 American Stars of Teaching. Parents, students, colleagues, school administrators and others can nominate an exemplary teacher possessing the qualities to be an American Star of Teaching. One teacher will be recognized from each state. All nominations must be completed by April 15, 2006.

To learn more or nominate a teacher to become an American Star of Teaching, please visit USDE's Teacher-to-Teacher Initiative Web site at: http://www.ed.gov/teachers/how/tools/initiative/index.html.
