Carroll County Public Schools and the county’s Chamber of Commerce are seeking nominations for the annual Outstanding Teacher Awards. The deadline for nominations is Jan. 15.
The awards recognize CCPS teachers who represent excellence in the teaching profession. Full-time, specialist and resource teachers in the school system are eligible. However, previous Carroll County Teacher of the Year winners are not eligible to be finalists and school counselors cannot be nominated, according to Maryland State Teacher of the Year eligibility requirements.
Any parent, student, fellow teacher, supervisor, school administrator or community member may submit a nomination online at carrollk12.org. The nomination form is posted under “News and Notices” on the home page.
Nominators are urged to choose teachers who exemplify the best of the education profession and explain why they deserve the recognition. All nominated teachers will be invited to the chamber’s awards program on March 24 when eight finalists will be named. The eight teachers will be eligible for the Carroll County Teacher of the Year Award presented by Carroll County Public Schools.
