Laureen Anagnos is Northfield's Teacher of the Year! - Submit Letters by 11/30

Our Northfield Nominations Committee would like to nominate Laureen Anagnos as Teacher of the Year for 2022-2023.

Please consider writing a letter of support on her behalf. This is an incredible opportunity to share your experiences with her and how she has made an impact on your family and the Northfield community.


The statement of support should address as many of the five nomination criteria listed below as possible along with other compelling information that showcase Mrs. Anagnos’ excellent qualities:

Nomination criteria


Nominees must be teachers who:

  • Instill in students a desire to learn and achieve
  • Understand the individual needs of students, encourage their talents and foster their self-esteem
  • Demonstrate a thorough knowledge of subject matter and the ability to share it effectively with students
  • Foster cooperative relationships with their colleagues and the community
  • Demonstrate outstanding leadership.

Please note that officially we can only submit 5 actual letters, but we know that there are so many individuals who want to write a letter for Laureen Anagnos. If you submit a letter, we will take it as consent to either submit the letter in its entirety or use portions of your letter to either create a group letter from people in similar roles (parents, students, colleagues, etc.) OR use portions of your letters as quotes to support the nomination criteria descriptions that the nominating committee has to organize and submit. We would also like to present all the letters to Mrs. Anagnos after the official submission.


If you type the letter, please use 12 point, Times New Roman font. You may include photos or graphics. If you handwrite the letter, please be sure that it is legible as well as written in dark pencil or pen so it can be copied and scanned.


Please submit your letter by November 30th to the Google Drive Folder.


If you have any questions or comments, please reach out to Melinda Collins at, or Principal Lopez at and Vice-Principal Hyun at


If you need to mail your letter to Northfield, please let us know so we can look out for it.
