Each of the 130 schools in the Gwinnett County Public School system picks their Teachers of the Year. These elite educators will then go on to compete for overall GCPS Teacher of the Year.
“It is an honor to be recognized by your colleagues,” said Dr. Nikki Mouton, executive director of staff development in a release. “It suggests their recognition of the efforts of our teachers on a larger scale—with their students, with adults, with parents and the community at large."
Later this month, the list of 130 will be narrowed down to 25 semifinalists. From that group, six finalists will be selected in mid-October. The 2014 GCPS Teacher of the Year will be announced at a banquet on Thursday, November 7.
