Each year, the HSSD proudly honors a Teacher of the Year for each of our schools, and a Teacher of the Year for the entire district. At each school, teachers may nominate peers for the award. Nominees then provide information about their work as an educator, and submit it to the leadership team at each school. A Teacher of the Year is then selected by the school leadership team at each school from all nominees. Each Teacher of the Year (7 total) is then considered for the HSSD Teacher of the Year by an outside committee of community members. The HSSD Teacher of the Year will be announced on May 24.

For Teacher Appreciation Week, we are proud to celebrate each Teacher of the Year at all 7 of our HSSD schools with unique stories about their background and their contribution to our world class students.
