VIRGINIA TEACHER OF THE YEAR

Our Mission

A membership organization that celebrates award-winning educators and provides professional development that enhances teaching, learning, and leading.

Who We Are

Our organization consists of Teachers of the Year from the local, regional, state, and national levels. These educators are teachers, instructional coaches, mentors, principals, central office administrators, superintendents, and professors. These individuals share the same passion, each is laser-focused on students’ emotional, academic, and social growth.

Professional Learning

We offer a host of learning opportunities for educators that promote growth in teaching, learning, and leading. We offer one-day professional development symposia across the Commonwealth as well as site-based professional development geared to the specific needs of schools. Online book studies allow educators to learn from home in conjunction with others across the Commonwealth collaborating to enhance professional learning.

Teacher Leadership

We cultivate leadership opportunities for educators across the Commonwealth. Our organization works to create opportunities for educators to share what inspires both the intellect and the passion that drives their work as well as nurturing the leadership potential that resides within the hearts and minds of educators. We want to elevate the teaching profession by encouraging educators to use their voices to share their knowledge and passion with others.
