There’s Still Time to Honor a Great Highline Teacher!

Do you know a teacher who goes above and beyond, demonstrating excellence in the classroom? There is still time to nominate them for the Symetra Heroes in the Classroom© teacher-recognition program. 

Teachers may be nominated by their principal, colleague, student or student's family member. Honorees are selected based on how they:

  • Make a real difference in students' lives
  • Go above and beyond in their day-to-day responsibilities
  • Help students build life skills

Submit your nomination through a simple-to-use online submission tool

Symetra Heroes in the Classroom are recognized in front of their students and peers at surprise in-school presentations. Symetra makes a $2,000 donation to each teacher-Hero’s school for classroom books and supplies. Honorees also receive tickets to a Seattle Seahawks home game, where they enjoy a pre-game sideline experience and are acknowledged during on-field presentations at CenturyLink Field.

All heroes from this school year are eligible to participate in the Symetra Heroes in the Classroom MVP Award, a $20,000 grant in support of innovative student programming. Proposals will go out to eligible schools in early 2020 and the winning submission will be announced at a springtime event at CenturyLink Field for the Heroes.

It’s a great opportunity to celebrate Highline’s best!
