Amarillo Independent School District (AISD) elementary and secondary Teacher of the Year were announced this afternoon in an email from the Teacher of the Year committee.
These teachers represent hard working educators throughout the school district. Each year, six finalists are chosen, three each from elementary and secondary schools.
"We take this opportunity to recognize our Teachers of the Year because they are representative of the quality of talented and dedicated teachers we have in our schools," Denise Blancard, program director for community partnerships said.
