Teacher of the Year Award Program

The NCMTA Teacher of the Year Award program was established in 2008. This award recognizes a teacher who makes a significant difference in the lives of students, contributes to the advancement of music in a community, and is an outstanding example of a music educator. 

Whether the nomination period for the NCMTA Teacher of the Year Award is open or closed, you can always be thinking about a colleague deserving of this recognition. For more information contact Vicky Fischer Faw, Chair of the Past Presidents Advisory Council (formerly known as Planning Senate). planningsenate@ncmta.org or fischer@elon.edu.
