Rayovac Teacher Appreciation Week

As a wife to a teacher, I am very appreciative to all that my husband does for the school and the kids. It’s nice to see companies applaud our teachers for all that they do.

Rayovac is recognizing the hard work and dedication inspiring teachers put forward for their students and how they bring learning to life in the classroom.  With it being Teacher Appreciation Week (May 2-6), there’s no better time than the present to show teachers how much they are appreciated.  I am so proud to be working with Rayovac on this! They have partnered with Steve Spangler Science to host the Teachers Bring Science to Life Contest.

I am asking you, my readers, to nominate an inspiring teacher.  Does your child have a favorite teacher? Was there a teacher that went up and beyond the call of their job duties? I remember my English teacher when I was in high school. She was always helping out her students in more ways than just English class. She was always there to help us with anything that we needed from different subjects in school and was always there to be a shoulder to lean on and an ear to talk to.

Students, parents and administrators have the opportunity to nominate an amazing K-6 educator for a chance to win one of three all-expense paid trips to Steve Spangler’s Science in the Rockies July 6-8, 2011 – an intensive three-day, hands-on science training held in Denver, CO offering creative science integration strategies. Teachers can even nominate themselves for this unique experience! Teachers and those that would like to recognize an extraordinary teacher can fill out the online entry form and submit an up to 300-word essay explaining why the teacher nominee would benefit from this amazing professional development experience

  • If your nominee is selected you will win a $100 Gift Card
  • Three teachers will win the chance to attend Science in the
    Rockies – worth $2,500 each

Rayovac will accept nominations at www.rayovac.com/science beginning May 2 – May 16, 2011. From the submissions, Rayovac will select three inspiring teachers to win the all-expense paid trip to attend Steve Spangler Science in the Rockies 2011 – http://www.stevespanglerscience.com/teacher_training.
