2019 Vermont Teacher of the Year Tom Payuer

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. 

Our 40th Annual Outstanding Teachers' Day virtual event was broadcast on Wednesday, April 7, 2021 to honor the 2020 Vermont Outstanding Teachers from school districts throughout the state.
