Wanted: Nominees for top Delmar teachers
The Delmar School District is seeking nominations for its Delmar’s 2004 Teacher of the Year Award.
According to the district, nominees should be skillful and dedicated teachers, grades 6 through 12, who plan to continue as teachers. Personnel whose main responsibilities are administrative or supervisory, such as principals and guidance counselors, are not eligible.
A nominee should have met all of the requirements for a standard certification, approved by the State Board of Education for the position held.
Nominees should have the respect and admiration for students, parents and co-workers. They should play an active and useful role in their community as well as their school. They should be poised and articulate and have the energy and composure to be able to withstand a busy schedule. The most important qualification is a superior ability to inspire a love of learning and to motivate all students to be lifelong learners. It is not a “best teacher” selection. The Teacher of the Year is asked to stand as a representative of the good qualities of all Delaware teachers.
The nominee must have been in the district more than three years. Nominees having transferred from another Delaware School District, however, must have been in the district more than two years.
Nomination forms are available in the school office, school library and the Delmar Public Library.
Nominations must be submitted with the consent of the nominee by Friday, March 28, noon, to Charity Phillips at the Delmar District Office.
