Falcons, Symetra Financial team up to honor teachers

FLOWERY BRANCH — The Atlanta Falcons and Symetra Financial recently announced a multi-year partnership to sponsor Symetra Heroes in the Classroom, a community program recognizing Georgia teachers for outstanding leadership and instructional skills.

Sixteen K-12 teachers across the state will be named a Symetra Hero in the Classroom during the 2010 NFL season. Teachers will be recognized in their schools with surprise presentations where they will receive a $1,000 donation for classroom books and supplies. In addition, they will be honored during live, on-field presentations at Falcons home games.

The winners will be selected based on their ability to balance the core curriculum with students' individual needs; build trust among students, parents and the community; and invest in their students' long-term success.

For more information on the program and to nominate a teacher for the award, visit www.atlantafalcons.com/heroes or www.symetra.com/heroes.
