Recognizing South Dakota’s outstanding teachers
District-level Teachers of the Year from across South Dakota will be honored at a banquet hosted by the Department of Education during the annual Systems Change Conference, Oct. 10-12, in Chamberlain.
The department will cover conference registration, lodging and meals during the conference for your district’s 2011-12 Teacher of the Year. The banquet will be held the evening of Oct. 11.
This is a great opportunity to recognize and reward your district-level Teacher of the Year for always going the extra mile, and it is a great opportunity for your teachers to network with other outstanding professionals from around the state and to bring what they have learned back to your district.
Superintendents, I would encourage you to provide us with the name of your 2011-12 district-level Teacher of the Year by Sept. 15, so we can invite him or her to the annual banquet. You can click here
to submit the information electronically.
Thank you for all that you and your teachers do for South Dakota students, and have a great school year!
