The mediocre teacher tells.
The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires.

~ William Arthur Ward ~

We are a group of appreciative parents and citizens who are committed to learning. We believe that curiosity and the desire to learn are inspired at an early age in many places. In order to encourage and recognize learning and excellence in our schools, we will salute ten inspirational Jewish Day School teachers each year in the City of Toronto with ten $1,000 Teacher of Excellence Awards.

We are looking for teachers who consistently demonstrate

  • Excellence - motivating students to achieve their best
  • Integrity - consistently thinking, saying and doing what is right
  • Respect - treating each student as valuable and full of potential
  • Innovation - inspiring students to explore and make choices
