Selection Criteria

The selection committee will be looking for nomination letters which:

  • explain clearly why the teacher is/was special and how that teacher influenced your life
  • capture the teaching practices, personal characteristics and/or professional qualities that make your teacher a worthy candidate for the Wall of Fame

Teachers being nominated must be at the end of their careers or retired. Posthumous nominations will be considered. The teacher must have taught for some or all of her/his career in the City of London or area (defined as that territory now within the boundaries of the Thames Valley School District and the London District Catholic School Board). Nominations which are unsuccessful in one year will be kept on file for consideration the following year.

Induction Process

The teachers selected for induction will be honoured on World Teachers’ Day, with a ceremony and reception at the Faculty of Education. Nominators will be invited to attend.
