To the person making the nomination: the suggested items to address describe qualities that we value in an awardee. They are guidelines only and it is not necessary to address each item, but if you do have relevant information to support the nomination, please include it. Specific examples of the nominee's techniques or strategies may improve his/her chances. We expect that at elementary grade levels, an outstanding candidate may teach a variety of subjects, so it is not necessary that the nominee teach Earth science exclusively.
