  • 7th Annual Teacher of the Year Recognition Event

    Truly great teachers seek to inspire hope, ignite the imagination and instill a love of learning. Then they wrap all that inspiration up in the warmth of genuine passion for this most noble profession. Our community and students are fortunate to have schools filled to capacity with truly great teachers. From among the halls filled with outstanding teachers, nominations are made. Each school selects a Teacher of the Year. A district-wide committee then selects one elementary and one secondary Teacher of the Year to represent Athens City Schools at the state competition. The selection committee is made up of five members, including the superintendent of schools, one member of the Board of Education, two Teacher of the Year winners from the previous year, and one parent-at-large from the Athens City Schools system. The selection process is anonymous and meritocratic.The 2022 Teachers of the Year were announced in September.  The Athens City Schools Foundation looks forward to celebrating each teacher and their accomplishments at the annual Gratitude Banquet* on Thursday, November 15.
