Harford County Public Schools has announced its top 5 finalists for the 2019 Teacher of the Year award and they are Rebecca Martinek, Paige Milanoski, Kristie Smith, Kathleen Thompson and Dawn Zipay.
The Teacher of the Year judging committee scored all nomination packets to determine a pool of candidates to interview with a panel of seven judges. Those judges then narrowed the field to the top five finalists.
One of these individuals will be announced as the 2019 Harford County Teacher of the Year at a banquet April 3 at the Bayou Restaurant in Havre de Grace. The winner will then be in the running for the state teacher of the year award.
