Seven Delaware teachers have been named finalists for the highest recognition that K-12 mathematics and science teachers can receive for outstanding teaching in the United States. These finalists will be honored at a banquet in Dover on November 9, alongside the state’s Lifetime Achievement Award winners, who will be named at the event.
One of 20 outstanding public school teachers from across the state will be named Delaware’s 2018 Teacher of the Year a week from tonight. Selected from among the more than 9,000 public school teachers in the state, the nominees each represent one of the state’s 19 school districts and network of charter schools. Governor John Carney will announce the winner at the annual awards banquet on Tuesday, Oct. 17 at the Dover Downs Hotel and Casino in Dover. Funding for the award ceremony is made in part by a grant from Voya Financial.
The Delaware Department of Education (DDOE) is hosting Community Conversations in October to gain feedback on the elements, priorities, and common terminology it plans to include on its upcoming Report Card website. Delaware's Report Card will refine how DDOE communicates with families and the community its progress, performance, and programs in Delaware education, and replaces the state's current School Profiles site for accessing education data.
