Delaware State Teacher of the Year - Teacher Activities
National Teacher of the Year Programs Conference
Each year the State Teachers of the Year meet to learn from each other and from experts on ways to improve and strengthen the role of Teacher of the Year. This annual conference is held during the third week of January. The names of the four National Teacher of the Year finalists will be made public in early January and they will be introduced at the banquet during the conference.
Washington, DC recognition of the National Teacher and State Teachers of the Year
In all years of the Program, the President has introduced the National Teacher to the American people. In recent years the President has invited the State Teachers of the Year to join in the Washington recognition. In past years, the Washington recognition has taken place during the third week of April. The dates will be confirmed at a later date.
International Space Camp
Another exciting opportunity for the State Teacher of the Year is International Space Camp at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. This camp, attended by the National Teacher and State Teachers of the Year, as well as teachers and students from over twenty countries, will allow you to learn about space technology in a supercharged atmosphere of excitement with colleagues from around the nation and the world. Just talk to a past State Teacher of the Year who has attended Space Camp if you want the inside story. The tentative date for Space Camp will be the last week of July.
