Twenty-five teachers from the Fayette County Public School System have been nominated to represent their school in the 2022 Fayette County Teacher of the Year competition.
The teachers were selected by their peers through a voting process that took place at the schools. Each school-level teacher of the year is now a nominee for the 2022 Fayette County Teacher of the Year competition and will complete an essay-style application about their teaching styles, objectives, and classroom initiatives.
The applications will be rated by a three-person panel consisting of last year’s Fayette County Teacher of the Year winner, Emily Hodge of McIntosh, and two retired educators.
The teachers with the three top scores will become finalists in the competition and will take part in a final judging stage that includes an on-site classroom visit and interview with the judges. The winner will be announced at the annual Fayette County Teacher of the Year Ceremony.
