Every year, the College of Education and Social Services (CESS) at the University of Vermont, together with Vermont supervisory unions and school districts, the Vermont Agency of Education, and the Vermont NEA, join to honor the accomplishments of our state’s outstanding educators.
We are excited to host the 39th Annual Outstanding Teachers Day will take place at UVM's Dudley H. Davis Center on December 5, 2019. We will join with school superintendents, principals, school board chairpersons, and other dignitaries to honor Vermont's 2019 Outstanding Teachers (PDF) and their commitment to Vermont youth and their families. We are honored and excited to host this event annually at UVM.
Last year, it was an exciting event honoring the 2018 Outstanding Teachers from every school district in Vermont. At the event, the Vermont Agency of Education announced the 2019 Vermont Teacher of the Year, Winooski High School math teacher Tom Payeur. Here is the official press release, and a link to Tom's story.
