Thank you for taking part in our 2022 Teacher of the Year Nomination process. A description of this process is found below:

Thomaston Public Schools Teacher of the Year

The Thomaston Board of Education recognizes the classroom teacher as the backbone of the American education system. No person has a greater impact on the education of a child than does the teacher who creates the primary learning and instructional environment. The Teacher of the Year Award is one of the most prestigious awards presented by the Board of Education. It is designed to focus attention on excellence in teaching. Annually, in June an honoree will be announced by the Chairman of the Board of Education or his/her designee.

Connecticut Teacher of the Year

According to the Connecticut State Department of Education, the Teacher of the Year Program recognizes and honors teacher excellence. It does not attempt to select the "best" teacher; rather, to identify, from among many outstanding teachers of the year, one teacher to serve as a visible and vocal representative of what is best in the profession. The program celebrates excellence in teaching by recognizing teachers who have inspired a love for learning in their students and who have distinguished themselves in the profession.

Selection Committee and Eligibility Criteria

The Thomaston Teacher of the Year Committee is composed of the administrators of each school, two district office administrators, the Superintendent of Thomaston Public Schools, and at least one Thomaston Teacher of the Year from a previous year. The committee will select the 2022 Thomaston Teacher of the Year from the eligible nominees.

The Thomaston Board of Education has established the eligibility criteria to guide Teacher of the Year nomination and selection. All nominees should:

a. Be certified teachers who work with children in a classroom setting in pre-kindergarten through grade 12, and employed in the Thomaston Public Schools.

b. Possess a superior ability to inspire learning in students.

c. Be exceptionally dedicated, knowledgeable, and skilled teachers who plan to continue in an active teaching status.

d. Have the respect and admiration of students, parents, colleagues and administration.

e. Play an active and useful role in the community and be involved in civic and/or humanitarian activities.

f. Be poised and articulate.

Now is the time to honor our extraordinary teacher and let them know we appreciate their contributions and positive difference in the lives of Thomaston's children. Thank you for your participation in this process!
