The purpose of the Rotary Club of Dallas Outstanding Teacher Awards for Service Above Self is to call attention to the importance of service in our community. The award provides an opportunity to publicly applaud our teachers and to reward those who have demonstrated excellence in their profession by "going the extra mile.”
Application is Open!
Nominees for the award are solicited from all Dallas ISD schools. Winning recipients each receive a customized engraved plaque, and a cash award from the Rotary Club of Dallas. The teacher awards are funded by an anonymous endowment established with the Dallas Rotary Club Foundation. The proceeds from the investment of the endowment are used to fund the annual awards.
"Teachers affect eternity; no one can tell
where their influence stops."
-Henry Brooks Adams
Applications may be submitted by Dallas ISD Teachers on their own behalf or by other individuals on behalf of a Teacher they feel deserve special recognition for "Service Above Self."
