Teachers of the Year Awards Banquet

The Teachers of the Year Awards Banquet honors the top teachers as selected by their colleagues. Teachers of the Year will hold that title for the entire following year (2022-23). Each school selects a Teacher of the Year, and from that group, three teachers are selected as the Elementary, Middle, and High School Teachers of the Year. One of those three is then chosen as the Division Teacher of the Year. The banquet was held at the Newport News Marriott at City Center on May 16.
