Nominations for Educator of the Year Due Soon!

The Educator of the Year awards recognize ATPE members who demonstrate exceptional and innovative qualities in their classrooms or work environments. If you know of a stellar educator who deserves extra acknowledgment, be sure to submit their nomination by Feb. 1, 2018. Winners receive a $5,000 check from ATPE. The awards recognize excellence in five categories:

  • Administrator of the Year
  • Associate of the Year
  • Elementary Teacher of the Year
  • Secondary Teacher of the Year
  • Special Services Educator of the Year

Members wishing to nominate another educator can complete the online form. ATPE staff will then contact all nominees about completing an application and essay.

These applications will be reviewed by the Educator of the Year committee, which will select up to three finalists in each category. Finalists will be notified in May so that they can make plans to attend the 2018 APTE Summit in Dallas, where they will go through in-person interviews with the award committee. Finalists must be able to attend summit for the in-person interview. Winners will be announced at the 2018 ATPE Summit.
