Teacher of the Year
It's that time again! Today we will start our voting for Teacher of the Year. Please stop by Cathy's office before 8am tomorrow to vote for one person for TOY. The ballot will have the name of each eligible teacher. Typically it takes a run off of 3-4 candidates which will take place tomorrow (after we count our first ballots). To be eligible you must have 3 years of teaching experience with 2 years in KISD and must be planning to continue in an active teaching status. Here are a few other criteria from the district:
Nominees should have the respect and admiration of students, parents, and co-workers. In their communities, as well as in their schools, they should play active and useful roles, often distinguishing themselves as leaders.
It should be stressed that while all of these qualifications are to be considered, the most important is a superior ability to teach students and inspire them with a love of learning.
