2019 Teacher of the Year nomination process now open

Schools are invited to recognize and honor excellence by nominating a Teacher of the Year for 2019. 

Quality teachers provide the foundation for student learning and achievement, supporting the district’s mission that all students will graduate with the skills, motivation, curiosity and resilience to succeed and be active participants in society. Effective teaching in every classroom is central to Vision 2020 and creating Quality Schools in Every Neighborhood.

Is there a teacher at your site that stands out and embodies the principles of quality teaching?

Instructions are posted in Administrative Circular 32 . The deadline to submit a nominee is Thursday, Jan. 24, 2019. Please note that nominations are being accepted online this year at https://www.sandi.net/staff/forms/2019-site-teacher-year-nomination-form#overlay-context= .  The process requires voting at the school site by teachers and nomination must be approved by the school site's SDEA Rep and/or principal. All nominated teachers will be recognized at the Teacher of the Year ceremony on Tues., May 7, 2019. Please note that nominations for Site Teacher of the Year will be accepted through April 30. However, if your nominee would like to apply for District Teacher of the Year, their name should be submitted by the Jan. 24 deadline to allow them time to apply.

Site Teacher of the Year nominees are strongly encouraged to apply for District Teacher of the Year (if they meet eligibility requirements). District Teachers of the Year and Runners-up then qualify to enter the County level competition.
