For teachers who earn just $12 to $25 an hour, a chance to win a $10,000 bonus is a big deal. That’s how much CCLC Child Care Centers hands out yearly to each five teachers who win its “Educator Award.”
“A lot of them cry,” says HR VP Melinda Rogers. “They just can’t believe it.”
Four more teachers win a paid trip to an international education conference. Last year’s event was in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
The awards, based on nominations from supervisors, are a way for the Portland, Ore.-based organization to thank and encourage the modestly paid faculty of its 112 centers.
Judges choose the award winners after observing nominees in their classrooms, interviewing parents whose children attend the centers and listening to what the kids and other teachers say about them.
A response that bumps someone into the winner’s circle might come from a guilt-ridden parent who says the teacher made her feel good about leaving her child in day care.
