Call for Nominations
The State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction is calling for nominations for the 2018 Washington State Teacher of the Year.
The State's teacher of the year program is dedicated to recognizing exceptional teachers and helping them become influential leaders both locally and across the state. Each year the program recognizes as many as ten regional finalists and selects one state Teacher of the Year annually. The Teacher of the Year then becomes Washington’s nominee for the National Teacher of the Year.
Here is a link to the State's nomination form.
Here is more information on the program and the award.
Lyon Terry, a 4th grade teacher at Lawton Elementary School, was named 2015 Washington State's Teacher of the Year. Terry is the last Seattle Public Schools' teacher to win the award.
