Celebration Continues for 2017 Campus Teachers of the Year

2017 Teachers of the Year


Each year 24 Teachers of the Year are chosen by their peers to represent their campuses. From this esteemed group, the district selects one elementary and one secondary Teacher of the Year to represent the district. The district Teachers of the Year advance to Regionals and have the potential to compete for state Teacher of the Year.

At the Employee Appreciation Event on Thursday, April 27, 2017, all of our Teachers of the Year will be celebrated alongside the Spirit of a Champion honorees and Service Award winners. Look for a save-the-date invitation coming soon! In the meantime, please congratulate each of our campus Teachers of the Year.
