Looking for Our Next Prince George’s County Teacher of the Year!
Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) is accepting nominations for our 2018 Teacher of the Year! Now through March 13, you can submit nominations of exemplary teachers through our NEW online process and streamlined form. All schools are encouraged to submit a nomination; only one nominee may be submitted for each school. Our Teacher of the Year will be announced during a black tie event on May 14 at the Greenbelt Marriott.
Organized by the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE), the Maryland Teacher of the Year Program recognizes the work being done by the state’s outstanding teachers. Drawing from a pool of nominees representing each county, one individual teacher is selected for the honor of representing Maryland in the National Teacher of the Year competition.
Teacher of the Year is the most prestigious award teachers can receive! To be eligible, all nominees must at least be in their sixth year of teaching and plan to remain a PGCPS teacher for the 2018-2019 school year. Nominees must be willing and able to spend time away from the classroom serving as advocates for public education and acting as local and state advisors in education policy and program development.
