Ohio Teacher of the Year

The Ohio Department of Education initiated the Ohio Teacher of the Year program in 1969 to honor, promote and celebrate excellence in teaching and the teaching profession. Award recipients serve as models for their colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders in education. Superintendents and principals are encouraged each year to nominate an exemplary teacher in the spring for selection the following fall. Awardees are part of a network of exemplary teachers who are engaged in school improvement initiatives.
