Campus Teachers of the Year Announced

Forty-eight campuses have selected nominees for Spring Branch ISD’s 2016 Teacher of the (TOY) Year competition. More than 1,300 nominations were received online from students, parents and teachers.

Campus teachers voted anonymously for their school’s TOY nominee. Winners will submit by writing or video answers to several questions related to education topics.

Three finalists at both the elementary and secondary teaching level will be named by the end of March. Superintendent of Schools Scott Muri, Ed.D., will announce the Elementary and Secondary Teacher of the Year winner at the Service Awards Celebration on May 4.

This year, SBISD’s two winners will receive a $1,000 cash award made possible through partner donations and a $2,000 professional growth stipend provided by the district.

The two winners will represent SBISD in regional competition, and move forward to state and national Teacher of the Year competition if successful. They represent the district in the annual Houston West Chamber Teacher of the Year competition.

The SBISD Teacher of the Year (TOY) Award recognizes and honors qualifying educators who meet the district’s priority goals.

SBISD Teacher of the Year priority goals include:
  • Support the district’s T-2-4 Goal and demonstrate commitment to SBISD’s beliefs and values
  • Be a dedicated, knowledgeable, effective and skilled teacher
  • Inspire students of all backgrounds and abilities to learn – have a growth mindset
  • Have the respect and admiration of students, parents and colleagues
