For thousands of students every day, teachers in Indianapolis Public Schools are inspirations: they influence, guide, stimulate, help shape and fulfill lifelong dreams and aspirations.
Hundreds of teachers were nominated for the Hubbard Life-Changing Teacher Award. Four honorees were awarded $25,000 each and six finalists were awarded $1,000 each.
The teachers were honored at a ceremony hosted by United Way and longtime education champions Al and Kathy Hubbard representing The Hubbard Family Foundation.
This award recognizes, celebrates and rewards exceptional IPS teachers. Those honored are teachers who have turned around the lives of one or more students and have a demonstrated track record of academic success.
