Nominations are open for the 2022 Toyota Family Teacher of the Year. Nominate your favorite teacher and/or colleague to share how they have made an impact on the students and families they work with.

Since 1997, the National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) and Toyota have partnered to recognize school- and community-based teachers across the nation who best engage families in family engagement, family literacy, and/or family leadership programming.

Through the Toyota Family Teacher of the Year Award, NCFL recognizes the positive impact of these teachers by granting the first place winner $20,000 and the runner-up $5,000 toward their designated family literacy, family engagement, or family leadership programs. 

The 2022 Toyota Family Teacher of the Year will be presented at the 2022 Families Learning Conference in October.

Nominators can preview a PDF of the application in English or Spanish. Official nominations must be submitted via the online form in English or Spanish. Incomplete entries can be saved and returned to at another time. All required sections must be complete before submitting nominations.

Nominations are due no later than 11:59 p.m. PT on Friday, May 6, 2022. For assistance or questions, please email Angel Chichester.
