Team Luke Hope for Minds - Fun Run!

Mrs. Baird's Teachers on the Rise

The Mrs Baird’s Teachers On The Rise program has returned to the Lubbock and South Plains area for our ninth school year. We are excited to honor more of our great teachers this year because we know great things happen in our classrooms every single day.


Students and families to log onto www.MrsBTeacher.com or simply google Teachers On The Rise. Once you are at the nomination site, enter in a little information about yourself and then tell us why your teacher deserves special recognition. Perhaps your teacher makes you feel welcome and included from a distance. Or your teacher goes above-and-beyond to make sure no student is left behind on learning. These are stories we want to hear about. Tip: We know teachers are nice, funny, and great, but we want to know why they are nice, funny and great. Please be as detailed as possible on your nomination.


We will continue to honor three teachers every month this school year—one from elementary, one from middle school/junior high, and one teacher from high school. The teachers will receive a great prize packet from our sponsors including a $100 United Supermarkets gift card, a lunch for two to the Texas Tech Club, and an assortment full of Mrs. Baird’s goodies! The student or family who nominates a winning teacher also receives a $50 American Express gift card.


Teachers deserve the recognition, so tell us about them today at www.MrsBTeacher.com.

We still have a few copies of the 2019-2020 school yearbook available for sale in the front office!
