The Governor's Educator of the Year award includes, but is not limited to, such positions as school counselors, school nurses, student assistance counselors, school therapists, and child study team members. 

    Each year this process begins with soliciting nominations from the faculty, parents and community. We encourage parents to nominate a faculty member worthy of such praise. Feel free to make a nomination by emailing a name to Please provide a detailed rational for any candidate being nominated.  Teachers who have received this award within the past 5 years are not eligible.  Those teachers are Cheryl Zanone, Nancy Bostwick, Kathy Ernst, Marisa Wos and Kathy Zajac. The committee will accept all submissions through Thursday December 3, 2015.
