TEACHERS ARE HEROES PROGRAM:

Do you know a teacher who has gone above and beyond his or her job description and instilled a lifelong love for learning?  ABC2 is proud to introduce Teachers are Heroes, a 10-month program highlighting one Maryland school teacher (K-12) each month who has gone above and beyond his or her job description and instilled a lifelong love for learning in Maryland students. The program runs August 2014 through June 2015. ABC2, in partnership with MECU - Baltimore's Credit Union, will award the monthly selected teachers a $250 check to use toward classroom supplies along with a plaque acknowledging their achievement. Winners will be highlighted on ABC2 News and abc2news.com throughout the school year.

NOTE: If you nominate a deserving teacher or even re-nominate a teacher who has made a positive impact in your community, you'll be qualified to win two tickets to dine & cruise aboard the Spirit of Baltimore.  One winner will be randomly chosen monthly thru June 30, 2015.  The online application is found at:  http://www.abc2news.com/teachersareheroes
