Nominations for 2021 Substitute Teacher Hall of Fame Now Open

Swing Education, a staffing application for substitute teachers, is now accepting nominations for its third annual Substitute Teacher Hall of Fame. The Substitute Teacher Hall of Fame recognizes substitute teachers across the nation for their outstanding work and notable contributions to the communities they serve.

“From remote to hybrid to in-person teaching, substitute teachers have played such a vital and supportive role during every phase of this challenging school year,” said Mike Teng, CEO of Swing Education. “The Substitute Teacher Hall of Fame will highlight three of these truly exemplary educators who continue to make a real difference and go above and beyond for their students, yet so often don’t get the recognition they deserve.”

Swing Education will select three inductees, each of whom will receive $500 cash, $250 for professional development or school supplies, and a commemorative plaque. Nominations are due by April 25 and inductees will be announced May 7.

Eligibility Requirements:

1. Live in the United States

2. Have at least one year of K-12 classroom teaching experience

3. Have subbed at least one day in a K-12 district, charter or private school in the 2020-2021 academic year

4. Students, parents, administrators and current or former educators (including substitute teachers) can submit nominations
