Individualized Teacher Rewards

Teacher rewards and recognition must come in a variety. Each person is unique, so teacher rewards cannot be one size fits all. It is important to determine what is meaningful to the recipients and give them choices. To find out how teachers like to be appreciated, have them fill out a survey form that states their preferences.

To give teacher rewards, you must determine what behaviors you are rewarding. For example, do you want to reward excellent attendance? One of the Fulton County Schools in Atlanta, GA, rewards attendance each semester. Those who qualify may select the incentive award of their choice, such as:

• A letter of commendation from the principal for their personnel file
• Two weeks of casual dress
• A 45-minute lunch period for five days
• A reserved parking space if their choice for one semester
• Three days of early work leave
• $50 classroom supplies order
• Three days of exemption from bus or lunch duty
• Exemption from two after-school or evening special events.

Through informal polls of staff members, the gift of “time” seems to be the most desired of teacher rewards!
