 Teach: VASCD Impact Awards

Impact Awards are presented to educators who consistently challenge themselves and others to learn, grow and achieve at the highest possible levels. They may be teachers, building-level leaders, or central office staff. Whether they work in classrooms each day or support those who do, their work exemplifies great teaching. They serve as catalysts, engaging students and/or colleagues in collaborative work. They are learners whose work reflects best-practice research and evidence. They influence, impact, and inspire others. Up to 8 Impact Awards are presented each year.
