2018 Teachers of the Year for Ohio's State Board Districts

Each year, the Ohio Department of Education invites each Ohio school district to nominate a candidate for Ohio Teacher of the Year. State Board of Education members assist with the award program activities. Following an in-depth nomination process this year, 10 State Board districts selected regional Teachers of the Year for 2018. A panel of education and community stakeholders interviews five state finalists from the pool of State Board district winners to select the Ohio Teacher of the Year. In the fall, the state superintendent will announce the statewide honoree.

A news release about all 10 honorees and individualized news releases appear below.
