The Teacher of the Year committee is accepting nominations for the 2018 award from all members of the district.  This includes students, unit board members and anyone who recognizes the achievements of an individual teacher.

The recognized teacher will have a proven track record of producing players who love the game of bridge as well as acquiring the fundamentals of the game.The district keenly understands that these students are essential to our growth and wellbeing. If you have a teacher you would like to nominate, please contact Laura Delfeld at lauradelfeld7@gmail.com.  Please provide an overview of your nominee's teaching credentials as well as why you think they deserve to be Teacher of the Year no later than December 31.
