The last two years have strained many teachers in the U.S. to their breaking points. But amid the challenges of remote learning, battles over vaccine- and mask mandates, and ongoing fights for fair wages, teachers have continued to innovate in their classrooms, finding unique approaches that improve their field and make a difference for their students—the next generation.
Teachers’ innovations have the power to shape the future. That’s why, in 2021, TIME featured the educators who saved a pandemic school year, and this year, TIME’s Innovative Teachers project will profile 10 teachers who are changing the landscape of education in America.
For the project, TIME is searching for K-12 teachers in the U.S. who innovated in their schools this year. Teachers can nominate themselves, or others can nominate on their behalf, and there is no cost to enter. Submissions will be open through May 4, 2022.
