Everyone remembers a favorite teacher, someone who motivates and inspires students for a lifetime. Minnesotans have the opportunity again this fall to nominate that unique educator for 2013 Minnesota Teacher of the Year.
Nominations open Oct. 1 and remain open through Nov. 15. Nominations can be submitted online by accessing a simple nomination form at www.educationminnesota.org. The 2013 Teacher of the Year will be named at a ceremony May 5, 2013. The Minnesota Teacher of the Year also becomes Minnesota’s candidate for National Teacher of the Year.
Eligible nominees must:
• Teach in a public or nonpublic Pre-K through 12th-grade school.
• Hold a baccalaureate degree and a Minnesota teaching license.
• Have completed three years of teaching by the nomination deadline
• Intend to teach during the 2013-2014 school year.
Anyone may nominate a teacher. Self-nominations are also accepted. The state program has been highly successful nationally – Minnesota ranks second behind California with four National Teachers of the Year.
