The 2015-2016 Teachers of the Year and Rookie Teachers of the Year have been selected from each of the district’s 38 schools and were recognized at the monthly School Board meeting last night.
These nominees represent the very best among St. Johns County School District teachers. Their colleagues have selected them for this prestigious honor, and they will advance to compete for the countywide title.
Nominations for the 2015-2016 Rookie Teacher of the Year have been submitted by 36 of the district’s schools. Eligible teachers must have taught less than three years.
This is the ninth year that the Rookie Teacher of the Year competition has been held. These nominees represent the top of their profession among new teachers, and will go on to compete for the countywide title.
The overall winner will be announced at the annual Teacher of the Year and Rookie Teacher of the Year Celebration on Tuesday, January 26 at the Renaissance Resort at the World Golf Village. The St. Johns County Teacher of the Year will then be included for consideration as the Florida Department of Education Macy’s Teacher of the Year 2016.
The awards banquet is produced by Investing in Kids (INK) to recognize excellence in the teaching profession and is sponsored, in part, by THE PLAYERS, Beaver Toyota/Scion and Leonard’s Studios.
Below are the lists of nominees. For additional information and tickets to the event, contact Donna Lueders at INK, (904) 547-7120.
