    • Candidates should be skillful, dedicated teachers who plan to actively continue classroom teaching. They should take an active role in their communities as well as their schools, and be professional, poised and articulate. The most important criterion in evaluating nominees is their ability to inspire a love of learning in students of all backgrounds and abilities.

    The Teacher of the Year candidate should:

    • be an exceptionally dedicated, knowledgeable and skilled teacher who is planning to continue in an active teaching status;
    • inspire students of all backgrounds and abilities to learn;
    • have the respect and admiration of students, parents and colleagues;
    • play an active and useful role in the community, as well as in the school;
    • be poised, articulate, and possess the energy to withstand a taxing schedule.
