Educator Recognition Programs

Massachusetts Distinguished Educator Recognition

The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education recognizes distinguished teachers and principals throughout the Commonwealth through its Distinguished Educator Recognition Program. The Department may consider these educators for advisory boards, task forces, and special recognition programs.

The nomination window for 2019 distinguished educators has closed.

We are very fortunate that people have nominated a rich pool of exemplary, experienced educators. Such educators exemplify teaching at its best, and their contributions have a profound impact on students, colleagues, and the community.

We look forward to honoring the distinguished educators in your school and district!
