Phebe and Zephaniah Swift Moore Award Nominations

In 1997, Amherst College inaugurated the Phebe and Zephaniah Swift Moore Awards to honor some of this country's outstanding high school teachers. The president's December letter is an invitation to each graduating member of the senior class to nominate a teacher who made an impact on the student's life.

School type (check all that apply): *
Is the nominee an alum of Amherst College? *
Is this person still teaching? *
In one page or so, explain why the teacher or counselor you are nominating was important in your life – and, if relevant, in the lives of other students.  Try to give the Teaching Awards Committee a full sense of your teacher. Brief anecdotes—especially about classroom experiences or teaching style—may be helpful. It would also be helpful to have a sense of the broad impact that the teacher has had on your life, and in other areas (scholarship, leadership, service to the community, etc.). The Teaching Awards Committee may request additional information about top nominees.
