Educators and Support Staff Celebrate Excellence in Education With a Night Out at Shore and Country Club

Excellence In Education


Educators and support staff will spend an evening celebrating educational excellence with great food, fun, accolades and a stunning water view at the third annual Excellence In Education event.


The Norwalk Education Foundation (NEF), the Norwalk Federation of Teachers (NFT) and Norwalk Public Schools (NPS) will once again host the annual awards event, which will take place on Thursday, April 25. Over 50 certified NPS teachers and support staff will represent the educational excellence of their colleagues and schools at the event. A list of this year’s honorees can be found here. 


Due to the popularity of last year’s sold out event, the celebration will now be held at the Shore and Country Club by the water in Norwalk from 5:30pm-8pm.


Event tickets are available on a first come, first served basis through Eventbrite for a cost of $50 per ticket. Last year’s event was sold out in advance. Doors will open at 5:30pm for hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar, followed by a buffet dinner and awards presentation.


Now in its third year, the Excellence in Education awards recognize Norwalk’s certified teachers for excellence in our schools. Finalists will be honored for their work in raising the bar and closing the achievement gap. School Governance Council members selected finalists from nominations submitted at each school. Similar to last year, nominated teachers are also  given the opportunity to apply for NPS Teacher of the Year, in alignment with the State’s Teacher of the Year program.


The Excellence in Educational Support awards were designed to honor non-certified staff members who have earned the respect and admiration of students, teachers, administrators, co-workers and parents. Nominees in this category have the ability to apply for the Paraeducator of the Year program.
