Teacher Award

2020 CWR Regional Conference and Auditions

We are excited to announce a new NATS Cal-Western Region Teacher Award.  This award will be given each year to a teacher in the hosting district.  To nominate a teacher, both a colleague, a student must participate in a survey.  The colleague survey is below.  Once the teacher nomination has been received, the committee chair will send the student survey to the nominee to distribute among his/her students or former students 


The nominated teacher will then submit the following: 

  • Teaching and Performing Resume/Curriculum Vitae
  • Teaching Philosophy
  • Head shot and Bio (to be posted on our website and included in the finals program)
