June 30 Is the Last Day for 2023 National Teacher of the Year Nominations

June 21, 2023

AFA is looking for the next stellar teacher to name as the National AFA/Rolls-Royce Teacher of the Year. These extraordinary nationally recognized educators go above and beyond classroom instruction to conduct student programs that propel students toward STEM careers and serve as major influencers for other teachers across the nation.

The current National TOY, Arizona’s Nancy Parra-Quinlan, represented AFA well in the last year at national educator conferences and in her home state of Arizona. Mrs. P-Q, as she is affectionately known, was recently interviewed by her local news about her summer aerospace camp. Watch the news clip here.

2023 National TOY nominations must be submitted to education@afa.org by June 30. State Teachers of the Year for the current or previous year are eligible to submit a nomination package approved by the State president. Find nomination information here.
