Honored is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to keeping great teachers in the classroom and to inspiring a new generation of talent to pursue teaching.
Fueled by student voices, Honored provides a platform to award and appreciate exceptional K-12 teachers across the country. We celebrate our Honorees by giving them a $5,000 award and partnering with world-class writers to tell their stories.
At Honored, we strive to elevate perceptions of the teaching profession and to inspire future educators by illuminating the power of teachers to change lives, one student at a time.
They teach in public, public charter, and private schools alike; they teach students from kindergarten to 12th grade; they teach subjects from math to theater to PE. So what do they all have in common? They are making important impacts on the lives of their students, every day.
