MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont Agency of Education is asking the public to join educators in nominating candidates for the 2015 Vermont Teacher of the Year distinction.
This is the first time that everyone can join in the process of nominating for the distinction, the agency says.
The program, launched in 1964, seeks to promote teaching and recognize an outstanding teacher in the state to advocate for the teaching profession, education and students.
To be considered, a teacher must be employed at a Vermont public, private or approved independent school, hold a current state teaching license and have a minimum of five years teaching experience.
Nominations will be accepted online through March 28.
Vermont's current Teacher of the Year is Luke Foley, an Alternative Program teacher at Northfield Middle High School.
