Halloween is the time to treat local teachers
Halloween is a wonderful time for students to treat their teachers, says John Snider, Arch Coal vice president, external affairs, eastern region.
"The best treat I can think of," Snider says, "is to tell a classroom teacher that she or he is respected and highly regarded. An easy way to do that is to nominate the teacher for an Arch Coal Teacher Achievement Award."
Twelve great West Virginia classroom teachers each will receive a $3,500 personal award again this school year, according to Snider. "There's no trick to nominating teachers: nomination forms are available in schools and libraries and also may be made online at www.archteacherawards.com," Snider says.
The Arch Coal Teacher Achievement Awards is West Virginia's longest running, privately sponsored, statewide teacher-recognition effort.
