Don't Forget to Nominate a Teacher!

As we approach teacher recruitment season, we would like to feature teachers from our schools on the Allentown Diocese social media channels. We are asking each school to nominate one teacher to be featured. Each teacher nominated will be entered into a raffle. We will award two winners a $50 gift card to Amazon. Please submit:

  • A photo of the teacher: a professional headshot or a high-quality photo of the teacher with students
  • The teacher completed questionnaire

Email the photo and attached questionnaire to me:

Thank you for your support in highlighting our wonderful teachers!
