Caroline County Public Schools supports the Maryland Teacher of the Year program by selecting a countywide Teacher of the Year. Full-time classroom, resource or media teachers, who spend the majority of their time teaching, are eligible to participate. Nominees must have completed a minimum of five years of teaching by June 2016 and be tenured. Caroline County's selection will automatically represent Caroline County in the Maryland Teacher of the Year program.
The Maryland Teacher of the Year holds a prominent position as a state education spokesperson and is Maryland's candidate for National Teacher of the Year. As the Caroline County Teacher of the Year, the teacher has an important role representing fellow teachers and working with education and community leaders to effect change.
