Each year, teachers in Lauderdale County nominate and vote for the teacher of the year in their respective school building. Teachers who are selected by their peers have the opportunity to apply for the TN Teacher of the Year program.  The TN Teacher of the Year program recognizes and honors outstanding teachers in Tennessee who care about children, devote their professional lives to enriching the lives of Lauderdale County students, and who demonstrate exceptional gains in student achievement.  Requirements of the program identify teachers at specific grade bands;  Pre K-4th, 5th-8th, and 9th-12th.   We would like to congratulate this years nominees and thank them for their hard work and dedication.
