HONORING THE MEN & WOMEN WHO DO MORE
THAN ANYONE ELSE TO EDUCATE MAINE.
At Educate Maine, we believe the classroom teacher is the backbone of the American educational system. Our Maine Teacher of the Year program honors the contributions of Maine’s classroom teachers. Our County and State Teachers of the Year serve as exemplars of the teaching profession, and advocates for quality education of Maine students.
Selecting a Teacher of the Year is meant to celebrate the thousands of outstanding professional educators in Maine schools, not to single out any individual as the best teacher in Maine.
What do we look for in our Teachers of the Year?
Teachers of the Year are committed to excellence and nurture the achievements of all students. Their exemplary skills inspire students and colleagues, and they help focus attention on the importance of public schools among everyone in the community.
To honor and recognize excellence in teaching and highlight the importance and impact of the profession.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to further the discussion about the importance of education for all students, as well as celebrate and share the great work that teachers are doing all over our state every day,” she says.
