Click the image to view the fully formatted Commissioner’s Update.

This week we announced that 14 teachers from schools as far south as Sanford and as far east as Milbridge have been nominated to be Maine’s next Teacher of the Year by their colleagues, students and community members.

While we won’t know the outcome of this process until a surprise award ceremony in September, we do know that the 2013 recipient will join the esteemed ranks of previous Maine Teachers of the Year and will represent excellent teachers and teaching throughout the state.

Best of luck to all nominees as this rigorous process continues.

— Stephen Bowen
