Outstanding Teacher of the Year
The Oakland County Outstanding Teacher of the Year Awards are presented annually to honor and reward teachers in Oakland County who have achieved, through their effort and example, the highest standards of excellence in their profession. Oakland Schools has created these awards out of a conviction that a quality public education system is essential to the health and vitality of our community. We believe that encouraging excellence in education is the shared responsibility of all who reap its benefits.
This award recognizes an elementary, middle/junior high, and high school teacher from Oakland County. In all, three teachers will be selected to receive the Oakland County Outstanding Teacher of the Year Award, which includes a cash prize and an invitation to our signature recognition event at Oakland Schools.
