Teacher of The Year

Teacher of the Year logo

Wisconsin selects four (4) Teachers of the Year (TOY) annually to represent Elementary Schools, Middle Schools, High Schools, and Special Services. Through an interview process, one of the four is selected to represent Wisconsin in the CCSSO National Teacher of the Year program. DPI considers all four of its TOYs as a Teacher of the Year and does not give special designation to the one chosen to represent the state in the National Teacher of the Year program.
