Teacher of the Year nominees to be honored at May 14 community gala
Seventy-two Teacher of the Year nominees have been selected by their peers at campuses across the district. These outstanding educators will be recognized at Plano ISD's Teacher of the Year Gala to be held the evening of Thursday, May 14 at Plano Centre.
An anticipated 1,100 guests will be in attendance to salute this year's nominees and "Excellence in Teaching" award winners at the gala, which will culminate with the announcement of Plano ISD's 2015 Elementary and Secondary Teachers of the Year. The top two teachers will be eligible to participate in the Texas Teacher of the Year competition.
2015 Teacher of the Year Selection Committee members will interview all teacher nominees in February and will make awards selections.
Teacher of the Year Gala Planning and Solicitations Committee members have begun meeting and securing generous monetary and in-kind gifts for the nominees and top award winners.
