Thursday, September 19, 2013
Trey Harris, a music teacher and band director at Bassett High School, was named one of eight 2014 Virginia Regional Teachers of the Year during surprise classroom visits and announcements today.
The teachers were selected from among candidates nominated by school divisions in each of the state’s eight superintendents’ regions, according to the news release from Gov. Bob McDonnell's office. The candidates submitted portfolios highlighting their accomplishments, educational philosophies and community activities.
A panel, including classroom teachers, representatives of professional and educational associations, the business community and 2013 Virginia Teacher of the Year Kathryn B. Galford of Chesapeake reviewed the portfolios and selected the eight regional teachers of the year.
The panel will interview each of the eight teachers next month to select the 2014 Virginia Teacher of the Year, the release stated. The decision will be announced during an awards ceremony Oct. 11 in Richmond.
