There is a two-tiered process for the selection of the candidate for the Maryland Teacher of the Year. The first step begins at the county level where applications are received and one candidate is selected to represent the Teacher of the Year for Charles County. Each Maryland county and Baltimore City selects one teacher and sends that completed application to the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE). The applications are then scored and tallied. Interviews are conducted, and the Maryland Teacher of the Year is selected through MSDE.
