2021 Albert Awards
Each year, the Albert Awards are given by the Parkway Alumni Association to three exceptional Parkway teachers (one elementary, one middle and one high school teacher) who are in the first five years of their career. The award recognizes these new teachers for the energy and enthusiasm that they bring to their students, as well as the creative and innovative practices they use in their classroom.
Each winner will receive recognition and $1,000 from the Parkway Alumni Association during Appreciation Evening in the spring. (Note: If social distancing guidelines are still in place at that time and Appreciation Evening is not possible, recognition will be provided in an alternate format.)
The Albert Award is sponsored by the Parkway Alumni Association and funded by the Educators Make-A-Difference Fund for the purpose of recognizing those teachers who are inspiring others at the very earliest stages of their careers. The award is named in honor of Dr. Albert Burr, a respected teacher, coach and principal in the district.
Nominations for the 2021 awards are now closed. Nominations for the 2022 awards will open in December 2021.
