Nominate a deserving teacher to win a $250 Visa Gift Card for their classroom

Over the years, Hatcher & Frey Orthodontics has been instrumental in changing the lives of local teachers through our Teachers Wishlist Program, which has traditionally happened once a year in the fall. More than $20,000 has been awarded to teachers in the Hampton Roads area to purchase school supplies.

Since March 2022, Hatcher & Frey Orthodontics has been proudly awarding deserving teachers a $250 gift card to purchase school supplies, additional learning tools or technology for their classroom every month of the school year. Awards will be distributed to selected teachers during the months of August – May, to correspond to area school calendars.

Nominations for the Teachers Wish List Program are accepted year round. Any certified teacher teaching in public or private Pre-K or K-12 schools in the following regional locations are eligible for nomination: 

  • Chesapeake VA
  • Norfolk VA
  • Suffolk VA
  • Smithfield VA
  • Isle of Wight County
  • Portsmouth VA
  • Virginia Beach VA
  • Hampton VA 
  • Newport News VA

Current or former students, parents, colleagues and community members are highly encouraged to nominate a teacher. 

Please answer every question in order to give your candidate the best opportunity to be named a monthly winner of our Teachers Wishlist Program. In addition, any examples and detailed information you can provide are helpful.

Monthly winners will be announced publicly on website and on our social media channels, where their nomination story will also be shared.

To give more teachers the opportunity to be selected, teachers who are named a winner in Hatcher & Frey Orthodontics’ Teachers Wishlist Program will not be eligible to receive the award again for the following three years.
