We believe teachers do far more than teach. They inspire and support the dreams of their students.
The original program was funded by The Charles H. Revson Foundation. In recent years, The Abramson Family Foundation has sponsored the awards dinner at The New York Times Company. At the award dinner, each student speaks about how important the teacher was to him or her. The teachers then respond, often musing about their careers in education and about how much students mean to them. Teachers receive a plaque and a check for any purpose the teacher chooses. Many donate the funds to their schools. Several teachers have been selected multiple times. The Teachers Who Make a Difference are the hearts and souls of their schools. The New York Times is honored to be able to recognize their achievements.
