Vermont Teacher of the Year Tom Payeur working with students at Winooski High School

Every year, the College of Education and Social Services 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‚Äôs outstanding educators. 

The 38th Annual UVM Outstanding Teachers Day took place on October 1, 2018, at the Dudley H. Davis Center. It was an exciting event honoring the 2018 Outstanding Teachers (PDF) 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 the story.

We are honored and excited to host this event annually at UVM.
