Knox County Schools Celebrates Teachers of the Year


5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 22



Knoxville Convention Center (701 Henley Street)


Knox County Schools will honor nearly 200 teachers during its 2018-2019 Teacher of the Year celebration, which is held each year to recognize outstanding educators from Knox County Schools. To be considered, a candidate must be a full-time, certified PreK-12 teacher who has taught five or more years and spends the majority of the day instructing students. Candidates must also show dedication to teaching and possess a variety of positive personal attributes. School-level recipients are nominated by their colleagues for this annual award and the number of recipients per school is determined by the number of faculty at the school. The event is sponsored by LifeTouch and Partners in Education.

Two or more board members may be present.
