Each year, the Beginning Teacher of the Year Award is presented to outstanding first year teachers at the Elementary and Secondary level in the School District of Palm Beach County. Winners are recommended by their principal for demonstrating excellence.

As part of the award process, nominees are asked to describe their biggest classroom victory, and how they’ve built relationships with students. This gives the nominees an opportunity to elaborate on the work they do in their classrooms.

The Mentor Teacher of the Year Award is presented on an annual basis to exceptional first year mentor teachers in the District at the Elementary and Secondary level.

Nominees for the award are asked to talk about why they became a mentor and the qualities that make them effective in their role. Congratulations to each nominee, and the winners:
