Amazing teachers deserve more attention. That's the idea behind the Fishman Prize for Superlative Classroom Practice, a new award that honors extraordinary teachers with $25,000 and the opportunity to share their expertise with educators nationwide. Offered by The New Teacher Project, a nonprofit organization working to ensure that more students learn from excellent teachers, the prize will be given to up to five teachers each year. Any full-time teacher working in a high-poverty public school, including charter schools, may apply. The deadline for applications is Friday, February 3, 2012. Learn more and apply online at
