School level Teachers of the Year announced

The first step toward finding Fayette’s 2011 Teacher of the Year (TOTY) is complete.

Last month teachers at all 29 schools voted for the person they thought most deserved to be their school’s TOTY. These school-level nominees are now competing to become one of three finalists who will be selected as the county’s overall winner.

They will fill out a comprehensive application explaining their teaching philosophy, why they chose to become a teacher, what they can do to better the profession, and their thoughts and solutions on issues facing today’s educators. Three judges, a retired Fayette County teacher, a retired Fayette County principal, and last year’s Fayette County Teacher of the Year, will read and independently rate each application. The three finalists will be announced late January or early February 2011.

Here are the school-level nominees:
