Colorado Teacher of the Year nomination process open

The nomination process for the 2018 Colorado Teacher of the Year award is now open, and the state’s Department of Education is accepting applications.

Each year, the program seeks to honor an exceptionally dedicated, knowledgeable and talent K-12 classroom teach to represent the entire profession in Colorado. Sean Wybrant, a career and technical education teacher at William J. Palmer High School in Colorado Springs, was the last recipient of the award for 2017.

Application materials are available online, and nominator information will not be shared with the teacher. The deadline to nominate someone is Thursday, June 1.

The teacher selected by the education department’s competitive grants and awards office automatically becomes Colorado’s nominee for the National Teacher of the Year competition.
