Each Gwinnett County Public School has named its Teacher of the Year (TOTY). This is the first step in the school system’s search for the 2013 GCPS Teacher of the Year.
Chosen by their colleagues at their local schools, these dedicated educators are known for challenging and motivating their students to reach their full learning potential, according to a GCPS press release announcing the honorees.
The annual Teacher of the Year recognition process begins each fall in GCPS schools.
The 131 local school honorees will move into the next phase of the TOTY process as they are considered for the systemwide honor. This group will be narrowed down to 25 semifinalists later in September. Six finalists will be chosen in mid-October from that group.
The annual Teacher of the Year banquet and the announcement of
the top teacher in Gwinnett County Public Schools is scheduled for Thursday,
Nov. 1, 2012.
