Call for nominations for county teachers of the year

Jan 10, 2018

Augusta — Nominations are now open for the 2018 County Teachers of the Year and 2019 Teacher of the Year.

Members of the public are encouraged to nominate educators who demonstrate a commitment to excellence and nurturing the achievement of all students at mainetoy.org through Feb. 5.

To be considered, a teacher must: hold the appropriate professional certification for his or her position, be employed by a Maine public school – including a public charter school or publicly supported secondary school, be actively teaching students at least 50 percent of full-time at the time of nomination and during the year of service and have minimum of five years teaching.

The eventual winner of the state’s highest teaching honor, which is awarded by the Maine Department of Education through a program administered by Educate Maine, serves as an advocate for teachers, students and the efforts under way in Maine’s public schools to prepare students for success in college, career and civic life.

The 2019 Maine Teacher of the Year will be selected from the 16 county honorees. The field will be narrowed to eight semi-finalists and then three state finalists before the ultimate winner is announced by Maine’s Education commissioner at a surprise school assembly in the fall.
