Is Your Teacher on This List?

Suffolk Public Schools is proud of all of its outstanding teachers — from those just starting their classroom careers to veterans who have impacted a generation of students.  Congratulations to the teachers recently selected by their peers to represent their school in the city-wide recognition program for the 2018 Teacher of the Year and Rookie Teacher of the Year.  City-wide winners will be announced in March, including one veteran teacher selected to represent Suffolk in the regional competition. Regional honorees then continue on to state and national recognition.
