Award to a Nevada PreK-12 teacher to recognize skill and dedication in the field of education. In addition to teaching, strong candidates take an active role in their school and community, speak articulately, and demonstrate professional poise. An important criterion in this award is the teacher’s innovation and ability to inspire a love of learning in students of all backgrounds and abilities.

The mission of the Nevada Teacher of the Year program is to celebrate excellence and strengthen the teaching force by honoring and recognizing exceptional teachers on a school, district, state, and national level. Being named Nevada Teacher of the Year is not only an award, but also an honor – one that comes with an enormous responsibility: that of representing the entire profession in Nevada.

The Nevada Teacher of the Year will make connections with schools, colleges, universities, organizations related to education, the legislature, and stakeholders around the state to elevate teachers, classrooms, and the teaching profession. They are an educational leader, a mentor, and an ambassador. As a spokesperson for Nevada’s roughly 27,000 educators, the Teacher of the Year is resource on the state of education in Nevada.

Additionally, the Nevada Teacher of the Year may also serve for one year as a Teacher Leader in Residence with the Nevada Department of Education. The option to serve as the Teacher Leader in Residence is dependent upon funding and is subject to an agreement with the teacher’s district.

The Candidate is an exceptionally dedicated, knowledgeable, and skilled teacher in any state-approved or accredited school, pre-kindergarten through grade twelve, who is planning to continue in an active teaching status. The Candidate selected by the state should inspire students of all backgrounds and abilities to learn, and have the respect and admiration of students, parents, and colleagues. The Candidate should play an active, useful role in the community as well as in their school, and be poised, articulate and possess the energy to withstand a taxing schedule.
