Know of any great under-40 teachers? How about a school administrator? Or an innovator in the field of education? If you know anyone who falls into these categories and other areas of education around the city, we need your help.

We’re looking to highlight Philadelphia’s most dynamic, young teachers and education leaders for an upcoming installment of “Who’s Next.”

The intent of Billy Penn’s “Who’s Next” series, presented by the Knight Foundation, is to introduce readers to the most dedicated young people working to shape our city every day. Our goal is to identify and track the next generation of leaders and influencers across a broad spectrum of fields.

We’ve been showing off some of Philly’s most dynamic under-40 leaders for more than two years now. Check out each of our monthly Who’s Next lists here, which feature people in disciplines ranging from artists to lawyers to teachers to chefs. We’ve featured educators before, in 2016 and 2015.

To nominate someone to be featured on Billy Penn‘s Who’s Next: Community leaders and activists list, fill out the form below — or send an email to tips@billypenn.com with “Who’s Next: Community” in the subject line. Please submit nominations on or before March 9.
