Awards and Recognition

Teachers of the Year

The Teacher of the Year program annually recognizes and rewards teachers who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and excellence in teaching. 

Nine teachers are selected by their peers to represent each school in Isle of Wight County. The nine candidates then prepare and submitt detailed portfolios for review by the Teacher of the Year committee, which then selects a single representative at each of the three school levels: elementary, middle, and high school. Finally, the three level winners are observed in their classroom by the committee and an overall winner is selected.

The Isle of Wight County Teacher of the Year then becomes a candidate for the Virginia Teacher of the Year.
