St. Gerald School Advisory Board


We want to know who makes St. Gerald school a great place to be.  Do you know a teacher who has made a difference in the life of your child or children this school year?  Someone who goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that your child has an exceptional learning experience?  Someone who challenges students to be the best they can be?  A teacher that consistently demonstrates a commitment to academic excellence?  A caring, compassionate individual that has a vested interest in the development and success of your child?  These are the qualities of an exceptional teacher and we want to recognize the GIANT commitment and dedication that our teachers put forth day in and day out. 

We want to hear from you!  Please take a moment to nominate a teacher that has made a difference in the 2016-2017 school year.  Parents, teachers and staff are all eligible to submit a nomination. You can submit your nominations online or via email to  

All nominations are due by May 12, 2017 and the GIANT OF THE YEAR will be awarded by the last day of school. 

About the GIANT OF THE YEAR award:  The GIANT OF THE YEAR award is sponsored by the St. Gerald School Advisory Board and is awarded annually at the end of the school year in recognition of our teachers that put forth a GIANT effort to make St. Gerald “A Great Place to Be.”  Nominations submitted by parents, teachers and staff will be used to select one or more award recipients at the sole discretion of the SAB. The SAB will consider the total number of nominations and qualitative feedback supporting the above mentioned qualities collected during the nomination period. Current SAB members are ineligible to nominate or vote for their child's/children’s current teacher(s).
