National Teacher Hall of Fame

The mission of The National Teachers Hall of Fame is to recognize and honor exceptional career teachers, encourage excellence in teaching, and preserve the rich heritage of the teaching profession in the United States. 

The vision of The National Teachers Hall of Fame is to be a prominent national organization that enhances the public's awareness of the vital role of education in society by working collaboratively with national education organizations and building linkages with other national teacher recognition programs. The Hall of Fame will recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of exceptional career teachers, preserve their careers in museum and virtual formats, and utilize their skills and experiences to elevate teacher quality and student learning through integrated programming.
The “One In A Million – Teachers Who Make A Difference” is a nationwide initiative to collect the names of one million teachers who have made a difference in someone's life. Anyone in America can place a teacher’s name into the National Teachers Hall of Fame’s (NTHF) archives with a minimum donation of one dollar ($1). Donations of larger than $1 are welcome and will result in the following recognition and awards:
  • $1-$124 Teachers name on NTHF website and displayed on a list in the NTHF
