New York State Teacher of the Year Program is Seeking Nominations for 2010

Do you know an exceptionally skilled and effective educator? Nominate an outstanding teacher in your school for the 2010 New York State Teacher of the Year. Deadline for Applications are due by Friday, February 13, 2009. The New York State Teacher of the Year Program, now in its 40th year, is affiliated with the National Teacher of the Year program administered through the Council of Chief State School Officers and sponsored by leading education associations. The nominee must be an exceptionally skilled and dedicated teacher, appropriately credentialed within his or her current teaching area, who works directly with children in a State-approved public or private school, at any grade level or subject from pre-kindergarten through grade 12, and who is planning to continue in an active teaching status. A minimum of five years of current teaching experience is required. The nominee must have the respect and admiration of students, parents, faculty members, the school administration, and local business leaders. The nominee must serve an active and useful role in the community as well as in the school. Because selection as New York State Teacher of the Year carries with it an obligation to make a number of public appearances, the nominee must be poised and articulate, possessing the energy and equanimity to withstand a busy schedule. While all of these qualifications are to be considered, the most important one is the superior ability to inspire learning in students of all backgrounds and competencies.
