Hartman Seeks Nominations for Educator of the Year

From Regional Superintendent of Schools Diane Hartman:

Nominations Open for Educator of the Year Awards

WOODSTOCK, Ill. – The McHenry County Regional Office of Education is seeking nominations from county school districts for its annual Educator of the Year Awards.

The annual awards, granted in partnership with the Community Foundation for McHenry County, recognize McHenry County’s top teachers, administrators and support staff, Regional Superintendent Diana Hartmann said.

“This is our opportunity to recognize and celebrate the outstanding educators in McHenry County schools. Please join us in highlighting these deserving individuals,” Hartmann said.

The contest is open to all schools in Educational Service Region 44, which covers most of McHenry County except School Districts 300, 220 and 118.

Nominations can be made in nine categories: preschool teacher, elementary school teacher, middle school teacher, high school teacher, administrator, student support personnel, early career teacher, private/parochial school employee, and educational support personnel.

Teachers must have a minimum five years of experience and spend more than half their time in instruction – the early-career teacher award recognizes teachers in their second to fifth year of service.

The deadline to submit nomination forms and the needed documentation to the ROE is Saturday, April 1; the nomination packet and form can be found on the ROE’s webpage.

Nominees and winners will be honored at the Educator of the Year Dinner at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, May 6 at Hickory Hall, 406 W. Woodstock St., Crystal Lake. Tickets will be available soon through a link on the ROE’s webpage.

  1. I’m guessing this should be an inspiration to all useless Public Sector malingerers and deadwood.

  2. I think they all already get trophies and golden tickets.

    Govt. never seems to miss opportunities to pat themselves on the back and pass accolades around.

    Taxpayer money could be used for better things than a big party for govt. workers.

  3. Half the teachers around here would not pass a competency test in their own field.
