Last holiday season, NewsWorks asked readers in Northwest Philadelphia to nominate their favorite youth sports coaches for a series of profiles. The year before that, we wrote about your favorite school crossing guards

In keeping with the spirit of that tradition, we are again seeking nominations.

This year, we want to hear all about the best school employees in Chestnut Hill, East Falls, Germantown, Manayunk, Mt. Airy, Roxborough and West Oak Lane.

That includes teachers, principals, nurses, secretaries, lunch aides and guidance counselors. If he or she works in a Northwest Philadelphia school and works to make a difference in young lives each day, we want to hear about that person. 

Want to nominate someone?

Please send along the person’s name, school, position, your reason for nominating them and, if possible, contact information via email or call (215) 351-5897.

Please submit your nominations by Dec. 7.
