Little Rock Family is proud to present the sixth annual class of Amazing Educators, sponsored exclusively by Delta Dental of Arkansas. With help from our sponsor, we gave awards to four impressive teachers in central Arkansas who work hard every day to inspire their students to learn, reach goals and dream. They spark imaginations, see students’ potential, give hope and tirelessly encourage.

These educators were nominated by peers, family members, parents of students and community members to be considered for the award. An independent panel of local education experts reviewed nearly 200 nominations and chose a winner in each category: Elementary School, Middle School, High School and Special Needs. While our judges must remain anonymous, we can’t thank them enough for their involvement and expertise in choosing this year’s honorees.

Winners were recognized in the fall of 2018 through surprises at assemblies and in the classroom — all of these were set up by proud principals and caring co-workers. During the ceremonies, each educator received a $1,000 check. Plus, Delta Dental donated hundreds of toothbrushes for health centers and students at each of the schools.

Congratulations to our sixth class of Amazing Educators and thank you to Delta Dental for investing in education! We appreciate each reader who nominated a teacher. Do you know a teacher who deserves recognition? We’d love for you to fill out the nomination form our 2020 Amazing Educator Awards.
