2019 Platinum Apple Awards Dinner
The 2019 awards dinner has passed. Check back for the 2020 awards dinner.
The most qualified people to judge top-notch teachers are their colleagues. That’s the concept behind the UTLA Platinum Apple awards presented each year – given by our own, for our own – recognizing professional achievement.
Educators nominate their colleagues for achievements such as developing an innovative curriculum, or an outstanding educational program, or for exhibiting exemplary instructional techniques.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 213.487.5560.

Unknown, unsung, teachers do the noblest work on earth. They cultivate the tiny seeds of genius that they may blossom forth in all their glory. They light candles of greatness to dissolve the darkness of ignorance and fear. They are quiet workers building the foundations of tomorrow.
A teacher with this spirit is our greatest servant. They don’t merely fill minds, they free minds. They do more than teach facts, they inspire growth. They do more than teach boys and girls how to make a living, they teach them to live great lives. They don’t teach them what to think, they teach them how to think. They help them to know the world and to live in it as world citizens.
Such a teacher strives to pass on to their pupils the love of learning. They share with them their knowledge of books and beauty. They strive to cultivate wonder and awareness. They help them to discover themselves and their infinite possibilities. They help them to help themselves. They believe in children!
