Honored is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to honoring and elevating great teachers. By celebrating the extraordinary impact teachers have on the lives of their students, Honored’s initiatives help to engage, inspire, and retain great teachers across the country.
Through two distinct programs, Honored National and Honored Schools, Honored’s innovative platform empowers students and families to provide teachers with meaningful affirmation at a time when teacher burnout and attrition are at crisis levels. These public tributes provide the individualized recognition and feedback that research shows keeps teachers in the classroom and inspired to advance in their craft.
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.
