Big Apple Awards Recipients are spending the 2013-14 school year serving as citywide Big Apple Ambassadors. Through our eleven Big Apple Ambassadors, the New York City Department of Education hopes to not only recognize excellence but have our award recipients be a resource to the larger community on what it means to be a teacher in New York City.
During monthly meetings, Ambassadors hear from members of NYCDOE leadership and provide insight on citywide initiatives, as well as collaborate on a group project with their fellow Ambassadors to impact education in New York City. Additionally, Ambassadors will create an outlet where best teaching practices can be shared amongst NYC teachers and where NYC teachers can support each other.
