Nominations open for 2023 Kentucky Teacher of the Year

You are welcome to recommend an outstanding educator in Fayette County Public Schools for the 2023 Kentucky Teacher Awards, which are sponsored by the Kentucky Department of Education and Valvoline Inc. Any full-time public school teacher in the state with at least three years of experience is eligible. Teachers may be nominated by students, parents, colleagues, principals, superintendents, or anyone from the community. 

“The Kentucky Teacher Awards are an excellent opportunity to highlight the people who work every day to prepare our children for a bright and meaningful future,” said Kentucky Commissioner of Education Jason E. Glass. “Their jobs have gotten harder in the past two years, but they have persisted. We encourage everyone to think of teachers who are making a positive impact on young people’s lives and nominate them for this recognition.”

Up to 24 Teacher Achievement Award winners will be chosen this spring. Judges will then consider the top nine contenders and ultimately select an overall Teacher of the Year.
