The 2006 All-USA Teacher Team recognizes outstanding K-12 teachers. Twenty individuals and instructional teams will be featured in USA Today as representatives of all outstanding teachers. Winners will have their photographs published and their accomplishments noted in the newspaper, and they will receive trophies and share $2,500 cash awards with their schools. (Each winning teacher receives $500. An individual winner receives $500, with $2,000 going to his or her school; each member on a team of four receives $500, with $500 going to the school.) Teachers can be nominated by anyone willing to put in writing why they are outstanding; nominees must complete the form explaining how they achieve their success.
