Greetings University Schools Community!

It is my pleasure to offer a very enthusiastic and heartfelt “Happy Educator Appreciation Week” to our amazing University Schools faculty. As I am sure you will agree, we are so very fortunate to have such talented and caring teachers across our schools. Teachers, thank you for all you do every day to enrich the lives of our children.

We look forward to celebrating the hard work and dedication of our team with the annual Faculty Awards. This year, we received 561 unique nominations from within our school community. It is my privilege to share this year’s recipients with you today!
