Tell A Teacher Story

It's always a great time to thank a teacher. Tell us a teacher story before Sept. 19 at 5 p.m. PST, and your school could win up to $5,000. We announce the next selection of winning schools on Sept. 30.

If your story is about a great math teacher, that teacher could win free DIRECTV for a year, and your school could win up to $5,000 from DIRECTV Goes To School to fund a math project.

We've already awarded $11,000 to seven K-12 public schools. We'll add $2 more to the Teacher Stories award fund for every approved story and donate more than $20,000 in total award money when the contest has ended.  Meet our past winners and read their incredible stories now. 

After you submit your teacher story below, browse our stories and check out the Contest Leaderboard to see the schools that are leading the way.
