Teachers of the year are chosen by a group of their peers. They must hold a state license, and have held one for more than three years. Teachers of the year must also teach at least three or more hours per day, five days a week in a classroom.
The nominees will complete a nomination packet detailing their educational history and professional development, professional biography and philosophy of teaching. The nominees must also describe how they believe they can improve and strengthen their teaching skills and how they would represent ECPS if chosen to advance to the state competition.
A committee made up of both educators and community members will review the applications and choose no more than five finalists to participate in interview with the committee.
The ECPS 2013-2014 Teacher of the Year will be announced at the annual ECPS Convocation in August 2013.
Last year’s ECPS Teacher of the Year was Amanda Evans at GW Bulluck Elementary School.
