WCTC wants to make the 2019 class of Teachers Who Make Magic the best one yet, but we need your help to do that!
Teachers go above and beyond, both in and out of the classroom, each and every day, so tell us about the special teacher you know! Whether they're a mentor to a child, teach their lessons in an extraordinary way, or do community work outside the classroom!
We'll honor all our winners with an awards ceremony and dinner at the Pines Manor in Edison this April!

What is the Teachers Who Make Magic Awards program?
The Teachers Who Make Magic program will recognize up to 24 outstanding teachers to receive this prestigious award for their important contribution to society. These teachers become lifetime members of the Teachers Who Make Magic Class.
This year in addition to recognizing outstanding teachers we also recognize one Educational Support Professional in our community. Educational Support Professionals or ESP’s take care of our children every day and make sure they have the tools and resources to succeed in our schools and classrooms. ESP’s include paraprofessionals, secretaries, bus drivers, food service workers, custodial/maintenance workers and security personnel.
