De Castroverde Law Group is eager to continue our Teacher Appreciation Award for Spring 2023. It’s been great getting to know these educators a little better and witnessing their impact on students firsthand. If you know of a teacher in your life making an outsized impact on the community, we’d love to hear about it. Whether you are a current student, former student, or even a parent, we ask you to nominate the Clark County teacher who has positively impacted your life.
Please Note: Even if you’ve already nominated a teacher during our previous rounds, you’re welcome to nominate them again. Choosing just three winners from such a large pool of qualified candidates twice a year is difficult, so please continue highlighting the teachers you feel are doing an exceptional job. The only teachers that are not eligible are those who have previously received a prize.

Giving Back to Those Who Make a Difference
Teachers have played a huge role in the lives of everyone involved with De Castroverde Law Group. In addition to the educators who influenced attorneys and staff during their time in school, the firm also has a personal connection to the profession. Alex’s wife was a first-grade teacher and speech pathologist for the district. In addition, Alex and Orlando’s sister is currently a first-grade teacher at a public school in Las Vegas. De Castroverde Law Group is committed to supporting our local educators and the children they teach. DLG is excited to honor a few outstanding teachers who continue to shape the future of Clark County.
