WFISD Teacher of the Year Nominees Announced

Congratulations to the 2011 Teacher of  the Year nominees. Since 1989 WFISD has honored teachers through the Teacher of the Year program.   Each year teachers select / elect Teacher of the Year representatives from their campus.  WFISD honors elementary and secondary teachers on alternate years with this year for elementary teachers.   Past WFISD Teacher of the Year winners have advanced, competed and won at the regional and state level. 

A banquet tomorrow night will recognize the teacher nominees.  A selection committee reviewed and individually scored each application to determine the top finalists. A panel interviewed the top four finalists to choose the single winner. Three finalists will receive  monetary awards sponsored by the WFISD Foundation and the winner will receive a plaque, a flag flown over the Texas State Capitol by State Rep. Lanham Lyne, and a monetary award presented by the Times Record News. The district Teacher of the Year will then compete at the regional level.
