Coconino County Teacher of the Year & Rookie Teacher of the Year
The Coconino County Superintendent’s Office is committed to supporting and improving educator quality by creating conditions for teachers to flourish. This Recognition Event highlights exemplary teachers while initiating a new conversation around the foundation for a transformative educational system. If we truly want a world-class educational system, we must honor exceptional teachers.
CCESA annually hosts the Teacher of the Year event and this year will host the first Rookie Teacher of the Year. The Teacher of the Year event is a county-wide teacher recognition program that spotlights the contributions of state-accredited teachers in grades Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade. The Teacher of the Year awards event recognizes three exceptionally skilled and dedicated teachers and three exceptionally skilled and dedicated rookie teachers of the year who have gained the respect and admiration of students, parents, and colleagues. These teachers inspire students of all backgrounds and abilities to learn and are dedicated and passionate about education. At the annual awards dinner, these exceptional teachers will be recognized. At the Teacher of the Year Awards Banquet, we will honor the Teacher of the Year and the Rookie Teacher of the Year. Additionally, we will honor the Ambassadors for Excellence and the Rookie Ambassadors for Excellence.
Please join us in the opportunity to celebrate, honor, and recognize the professional educators within our County community. Their tremendous efforts and successes create positive impacts and motivations, which are evident through the successes of our students and their families here in Coconino County.
