Posted on 10/05/2020

The New Jersey Department of Education has announced the Governor's Educator of the Year Program for the 2020-2021 school year. This updated celebratory program highlights educational innovation, student achievement, the rewards of teaching, and important services outside the classroom environment that lead to student success. Further, it seeks to attract public attention to the positive aspects of our educational system.

Do you know a classroom teacher or educational services professional who is dedicated, inspiring, and making a difference in the lives of students? If so, please take the time to recommend this person by completing the attached nomination form and returning it to your building principal on or before Monday, November 16, 2020. Please email your nomination form directly to the building principal. Administrators, staff members, parents, and community members are encouraged to participate.

Please nominate our amazing staff! Each school will recognize BOTH classroom teacher AND an educational services professional, so you may submit one nomination for each.
