Purpose: Launched In 2012, The $25,000 Fishman Prize For Superlative Classroom Practice Is An Annual Award For Exceptionally Effective Teachers Working In High-poverty Public Schools. No More Than Five Teachers Are Awarded The Prize Each Year. The Prize Is Named For Shira Fishman, A TNTP-trained Math Teacher Currently Teaching At McKinley Technology High School In Washington, DC.

In Addition To Receiving $25,000 Each, Fishman Prize Winners Participate In An Intensive Summer Residency During Which They Reflect On Their Classroom Practice, Explore The Larger Issues That Shape Their Profession, And Write A Short Paper On The Elements Of Effective Teaching.
