Hartford Public Schools Announces Nominees for 2020 Teacher of the Year

Hartford Public Schools Announces Nominees for 2020 Teacher of the Year

The competition for Hartford’s 2020 Teacher of the Year has begun with thirty-seven teachers nominated by their schools to participate in this year’s selection process.  (Pictured above are last year’s 2019 Teacher of the Year Nominees.)

Each 2020 nominee has undergone an intensive screening and interview process conducted remotely 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. They will be asked to complete a series of written essay questions for the final evaluation.

The winner will be announced on Thursday, May 21, 2020. Due to precautionary measures taken to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we remain uncertain about the whether the annual Teacher of the Year Awards Banquet will be held. Traditionally, it is held at the Hartford Downtown Marriott Hotel.

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. The Teacher of the Year Awards are funded solely by sponsorships and ticket sales.

Las Escuelas Públicas de Hartford Anuncian Nominados para el Maestro del Año 2020

La competencia para el Maestro del Año 2020 de Hartford ha comenzado con treinta y siete maestros nominados por sus escuelas para participar en el proceso de selección de este año. (En la foto de arriba están los nominados al maestro del año del año pasado (2019.))

Cada nominado ha pasado por un proceso de selección y entrevista intensivo llevado a cabo de forma remota por un Comité del Maestro del Año compuesto por directores de currículos de las Escuelas Públicas de Hartford, funcionarios de la Federación de Maestros de Hartford y ganadores de premios anteriores. Después de su revisión, el comité selecciona tres finalistas. También se les pedirá que completen una serie de preguntas escritas para la evaluación final.

El ganador será anunciado el jueves 21 de mayo.  Debido a las medidas de precaución tomadas para ayudar a prevenir la propagación de COVID-19, no estamos seguros que se lleve a cabo el Banquete anual de Premios al Maestro del Año. Tradicionalmente, se lleva a cabo en el Hartford Downtown Marriott Hotel.

Todos los nominados deben ser maestros titulares de K-12 en el sistema de las Escuelas Públicas de Hartford. Deben exhibir habilidades de enseñanza ejemplares, mostrar compromiso con la creencia de que todos los niños pueden aprender y deben estar activos en asuntos comunitarios y humanitarios. Los Premios al Maestro del Año se financian exclusivamente con patrocinios y venta de entradas.
