Audience: Directors of Schools
Contact: Debra.Muskar@tn.gov
In an effort to streamline the application and review process for the Teacher of the Year program, teachers and district staff may now access the application and all required forms electronically here. Please note the two upcoming deadlines for participation in the regional- and state-level Teacher of the Year selection process:

  • By Feb. 10, the district-level Teacher of the Year selection process must be completed and the director of schools (or his/her designee) should submit the names of the district teachers of the year for the three grade-bands, pre-K–4, 5–8 and 9–12, using the District-level Teacher of the Year Report Form.  
  • By Feb. 24, district teachers of the year should complete Part I of the application and submit four copies to the CORE office by 5 p.m. CST. Please note that nominees are no longer required to submit a photo or letters of recommendation for the regional selection process, but they will submit these items if they advance to the state-level competition.
