National Network of State Teachers of the Year (NNSTOY) - Pennsylvania Chapter and Pennsylvania Department of Education
Awards to Pennsylvania PreK-12 teachers to recognize outstanding contributions to the quality of public education. Nominations are invited on behalf of exceptional teachers who inspire students to learn, play an active role in their community and school, and have the admiration and respect of students, colleagues, and parents.
Teacher of the Year Responsibilities:
Being a Pennsylvania Teacher of the Year and nominee for the National Teacher of the Year is a great honor and responsibility. Regional finalists for Teacher of the Year and the national nominee, in particular, will be asked to participate in a variety of activities, such as serving on Pennsylvania Department of Education committees and making presentations to various groups. The national nominee will also be invited to participate in state nominee activities.
Districts will be expected to provide substitute teachers for the teachers to participate in a reasonable number of activities as regional finalists and Teacher of the Year. Regional finalists and the Teacher of the Year will return to the annual Pennsylvania Teacher of the Year Educational Forum the following year to present best practices and participate in professional development sessions. The National Teacher of the Year is released from classroom duties for a year to serve as a spokesperson and advocate for the teaching profession.
