Is your child’s teacher the best of the best? Nominate him or her to become your school’s Teacher of the Year. The winning teacher will receive prizes and recognitions at an April 16, 2013 Canyons Board of Education Reception and Honors Ceremony. He or she also will have a chance to be selected as the Canyons School District Teacher of the Year, who will receive additional prizes and recognitions and be nominated for the State Teacher of the Year award.
Here’s how you can get involved:
- Download the Nomination Form
- Complete the form on why you think your nominee should be recognized. Criteria include how the teacher shows that students are making progress, supports the Canyons District vision and goals, and exhibits leadership skills and efforts to promote collaboration, student engagement, and community and family involvement.
- Print and submit the form to your school’s PTA leaders, or, if you are a school employee, to the principal, by March 1. The School Selection Committee will consider nominees forwarded by the PTA (up to two) and employees.
- Watch for information on the March 22 Teacher of the Year surprise announcement at your school.
Canyons School District honors Teachers of the Year at every school. Winners of each school’s Teacher of the Year will be announced at school celebrations on March 22, 2013. The District Teacher of the Year will be announced by the Board of Education on April 16, 2013.
