2015 Teacher of the Year Application

Thank you for honoring the amazing work of our San Mateo County teaching corps by forwarding this application to those teachers who might be interested in serving in the role of San Mateo County Elementary or Secondary Teacher of the Year.

To encourage greater local participation, we have simplified the process for the county level recognition. Teachers selected as County Teacher of the Year will then have the option to complete the more in-depth application required for the State Teacher of the Year.

San Mateo County Teacher of the Year applications must be submitted to the San Mateo County Office of Education no later than June 27, 2014.

Eligibility Criteria

Eligibility for the San Mateo County Teachers of the Year is limited to candidates who have been teaching for at least eight years, and meet any of the following criteria:

  • Fully credentialed teachers in public or private schools who teach any of prekindergarten through grade twelve.
  • Teachers of adults who provide instruction in the same curriculum as those who teach in elementary or secondary grades.
  • Instructors who have some administrative responsibilities but for whom teaching students is the primary responsibility.
