Applications for the Charles County candidate for Maryland Teacher of the Year are due by Wednesday, March 14, 2017 at 3:00 p.m., to the Office of Human Resources.  Applicant must be a full-time classroom, resource or media teacher who spends the majority of his or her time teaching and must have completed a minimum of five years teaching. There can only be one applicant per school. 

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.


MSDE is currently aligning their application with the National Teacher of the Year application in order to streamline their process. Updates will be posted on the Charles County Public Schools website as edits or changes to the application are received from MSDE. The applicant selected to represent Charles County Public Schools will be given the opportunity to update and finalize their binder prior to presenting their binder at the Tuesday, May 22, 2018 ceremony and luncheon in Baltimore.
