Each year, the Down Syndrome Guild of Dallas recognizes individuals and/or teams working with students with Down syndrome in an inclusive educational setting, public or private. Experience, education, and community involvement, as well as teaching philosophy, are all criteria that the Award Committee will consider. Past winners have included teachers, transition specialists, speech therapists, paraprofessionals, and others working at all grade levels.
Any Down Syndrome Guild member may nominate their favorite educator by completing the nomination form above. Deadline for nominations is Friday, August 7, 2015. Winners will be recognized at the Learning Together, Focusing on Possibilities Fall Conference in September.
