Hartford Public Schools Announces Nominees for 2019 Teacher of the Year

The competition for Hartford’s 2019 Teacher of the Year has begun with forty teachers nominated by their schools to participate in this year’s selection process.

Each nominee will now undergo an intensive screening and interview process conducted by a district-wide Teacher of the Year Committee made up of Hartford Public Schools curriculum directors, officials from the Hartford Federation of Teachers and previous award winners. After its review, the committee selects three finalists. Each finalist will then be recorded on video while conducting a class in their school. They will also be asked to complete a series of written essay questions for the final evaluation.

The winner will be announced on Thursday, May 23, 2019 at the annual Teacher of the Year Awards Banquet to be held at the Hartford Marriott Downtown Hotel, located at 200 Columbus Blvd. All nominees must be tenured K-12 teachers in the Hartford Public Schools system who exhibit exemplary teaching skills, show commitment to the belief that all children can learn, and must be active in community and humanitarian affairs.

Last year’s winner was Benjamin Carlson, a Physical Education teacher at Annie Fisher STEM Magnet School.
