Teacher of the Year
Each year, the Salt Lake Education Foundation and Salt Lake City
School District honor exceptionally dedicated, knowledgeable and
skilled educators. We recognize a Teacher of the Year, an Early
Childhood Teacher of the Year and a Special Education Teacher of
the Year. After being nominated by students, parents and peers,
potential honorees are screened by a community review board.
Winning teachers receive a monetary award and are recognized at a
districtwide event held every August. Teacher of the Year winners
are able to participate in the statewide and, ultimately,
nationwide teacher of the year programs.
