Hello Worthington Middle School PTAs,

I'm excited to invite you and your parents to a zoom meeting hosted by the KMS PTSA, led by a therapist at SUN Behavioral. This is the email I sent to our KMS parents. Please let me know if you have any questions and hope you are able to join us.

"Please mark your calendars for Wednesday February 9 from 7-8pm. SUN Behavioral Columbus has graciously agreed to join a zoom meeting hosted by the PTSA to discuss adolescent mental health. Avery Poole, a therapist at SUN, will be sharing information related to (pre)teen anxiety, depression, warning signs, support, and what is “typical” for parents. Please join us!

Recognize outstanding teachers through the Ohio Teacher of the Year Program:

The Ohio Teacher of the Year program annually identifies exceptional teachers and celebrates their effective, inspiring work both inside and outside of the classroom. The program also provides opportunities for professional growth elevating their voice as leaders and advocates for public education.

The program offers two levels of statewide recognition: the regional State Board District Teacher of the Year (11 regions) and the Ohio Teacher of the Year.

Nominees must hold a professional Ohio educator license, work full-time with a minimum of five years of teaching experience under a professional license in a state-approved public school, community school or career center. They also must work directly with students at least 50 percent of the time, have received no previous Ohio Teacher of the Year recognition, and plan to continue in active teaching status. *Resident Educator License holders do not qualify.

Anyone may nominate a teacher. School administrators, colleagues, community members, parents or students may submit a nomination for one or multiple teachers from a district or school building. (Self-nominations are not accepted). Each qualified nominee will receive a certificate of recognition and an invitation to apply to the program after the nomination period closes. We hope you consider nominating teachers from your district to Ohio’s most prestigious and long-standing teacher recognition program.

Nomination information is available on the Ohio Teacher of the Year webpage.
