Ambassadors to the Future of our Children, Education, and New York State

Recognizing the dedication, expertise, and mission of thousands of New York Teachers, Governor Cuomo is seeking applications from teachers who demonstrate the excellence we see in classrooms across the State.

Every day, thousands of teachers across the State of New York are making a difference in the lives of children. These teachers hold high expectations and academic goals for every one of their students. They foster creativity, instill a love of learning, and motivate all students, inspiring thinking and student initiative. These professionals are eager learners who pursue meaningful professional development throughout their careers.

These teachers are the ambassadors to children who are our future, to their profession, and to all who will become teachers in the future.
