Submit your applications for TIME Innovative Teachers 2022

Jhe last two years have put many teachers in the United States to the test. 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.

Teacher 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 feature 10 teachers who are changing the landscape of education in America.

For the project, TIME is looking for K-12 teachers in the United States who have innovated in their schools this year. Teachers can nominate themselves, or others can nominate on their behalf, and registration is free. Submissions will be open until May 4, 2022.

To nominate a teacher, complete the submission form here:
