Deadline Extended for Teacher of the Year Nominations
Nominations accepted through Feb. 22
February 13, 2008
AUGUSTA – The Maine State Board of Education and the Department of Education are seeking additional nominations for the 2009 Maine Teacher of the Year, and have extended the deadline for nominations to February 22, 2008. Any certified Maine teacher who is currently giving daily classroom instruction in a Maine approved public or private elementary or secondary school may be nominated.
The Teacher of the Year Program does not attempt to single out any individual as the best teacher in Maine, but rather to honor one teacher who represents all the excellent teachers in our State. Selecting a Teacher of the Year is an exceptional way to celebrate the many outstanding and dedicated people teaching in Maine schools.
Additional information and the nomination form can be found online at: http://www.maine.gov/education/toy/index.html . In an attempt to broaden the pool of nominations, we are encouraging re-nomination of teachers nominated in recent years (contrary to the suggestion found in Informational Letter #46 that school administrative units limit how often they nominate teachers from their schools). Any educator who meets the other criteria stated in the letter may be nominated. Nominations may come from a nominating committee or a principal, superintendent, parent, colleague or other person.
