"The Chadwick's of Boston Teacher of the Year Program recognizes the tremendous accomplishments of teachers nationwide. Each year we receive thousands of nominations describing the outstanding work of nominees and their dedication to their community, their schools and most importantly, their students," explains Cathy Fultineer, Executive Vice President, Chadwick's of Boston.
