District Teachers of the Year

Each year, teachers from across Rhode Island represent their individual LEAs as District Teachers of the Year.

Each District Teacher of the Year (DTOY) will serve as a liaison between the district and the RI Department of Education to share information about state initiatives, attend full and half day professional learning sessions focused on DTOY leadership, collaborate with DTOYs from across the state, and have the opportunity to apply to represent all Rhode Island educators as the 2024 State Teacher of the Year.


Deadline: Friday, May 27, 2022.
