Who are the best of the best teachers? After going through an interview phase, The Department of Education has announced the 7 finalists for the 2015 Teacher of the Year.
DOE Deputy Superintendent Rob Malay says the finalists now advance to the observation stage where a panel of judges will be visiting their classrooms.
Then based on judging, one teacher from each level will be recognized and the teacher that has the highest number of points from all three rounds will take the title of the 2015 GDOE Teacher of the Year.
The winning teacher will then be announced on May 13 during a special gala hosted by the Foundation for Public Education.
