Nominations open for Maine Teacher of the Year program

Dear Students, Parents, Families and Staff

Nominations are now open for the 2023 County Teachers of the Year and 2024 State Teacher of the Year. We are encouraging the community to nominate educators in Sanford who have demonstrated a commitment to excellence and inspire all students' achievement.

Nominations can be made through a form on the Maine Teacher of the Year Website (click here) from now until 5:00 p.m. on February 5, 2023. They are accepted by students, parents, caregivers, community members, school administrators, colleagues, college faculty members, and associations/organizations. Self-nominations and nominations from family members are not accepted.

All Sanford School Department Pre-K through Grade 12 teachers are eligible, including SRTC and Sanford Community Adult Education teachers. However, they must have been teaching for a minimum of five years – three of which are in Maine.


Matt Nelson, Superintendent of Sanford Schools
