Is there an Omaha Public Schools teacher that deserves recognition? 

A great teacher can turn a geography lesson into an exciting adventure or make a passing conversation become a life lesson. And the Omaha Public Schools community is fortunate to have so many great teachers. It’s why the Alice Buffett Outstanding Teacher Award was created more than 25 years ago—to recognize those teachers who have gone above and beyond to help their students in the classroom and in life. Nominate an OPS teacher for this award, and tell us what he or she has done that has made a difference. Visit or to make your nomination by January 15, 2017.
