Nominate an Outstanding Teacher for an R.E.B. Award

Approximately 15 exceptional public school teachers are selected each year to receive cash grants to support professional development activities.

Ever wonder how you might honor a teacher who has inspired, equipped, or encouraged you to succeed? Take a few moments to nominate an outstanding public school teacher for an R.E.B. Award for Teaching Excellence and a chance to win a grant award of up to $12,000.

Through a nomination process, approximately 15 exceptional public school teachers are selected each year to receive cash grants to support professional development activities. Nominations are invited from parents, students, educators, and the community at-large. Award recipients have earned graduate degrees, climbed mountains, traced their ancestors and met peers from around the world - all to kindle their own passion for learning and to pass it on to their students.

“What the REB Award process did for me was reignite an excitement and energy for both my teaching and learning. The REB Award rejuvenated my focus and drive for education, and that effect flooded over into the successes of so many students I get to work with every year,” said Karl Lippa, 2013 REB Award Winner.

The program is based on the belief that a positive educational experience at the elementary, middle and high school levels helps children form positive life-long habits toward learning and discipline. Nominations are welcomed for public school teachers from the City of Richmond and Counties of Chesterfield, Hanover, Henrico and the Department of Juvenile Justice in these localities. 

Richmond Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Bedden interviewed a recent REB Award winner Tiffany Floyd who plans to travel to Finland this winter. You can check out their interview here:
