SOESD Announces Regional Teacher of the Year!

SOUTHERN OREGON EDUCATION SERVICE DISTRICT 
ANNOUNCES

SOUTHERN OREGON REGIONAL TEACHER OF THE YEAR
 
On behalf of the Oregon Department of Education, Southern Oregon Education Service District is proud to announce that Mr. Greg Bryant, English Language Arts Teacher at North Medford High School, has been selected as a 2019 Oregon Regional Teacher of the Year.  Mr. Byrant will be honored in the coming month during an all school assembly where he will be awarded a check for $500.00.

Southern Oregon Education Service District convened a Blue Ribbon Panel made up of seven diverse and unbiased members who equitably represented the geographic region of Jackson, Josephine, and Klamath counties. The panel, who reviewed five applications from a larger set of nominations, looked for a teacher who exemplified the following attributes:
  • Is an exceptionally dedicated, knowledgeable, and skilled teacher in any state-approved or accredited school, pre-kindergarten through grade twelve, who is planning to continue in an active teaching status
  • Is an expert in their field who guides students of all backgrounds and abilities to achieve excellence
  • Collaborates with colleagues, students, and families to create a school culture of respect and success
  • Deliberately connects the classroom and key stakeholders to foster a strong community at large
  • Demonstrates leadership and innovation in and outside of the classroom walls that embodies lifelong learning
  • Expresses themselves in an engaging and articulate way
The Oregon Teacher of the Year Program started in 1955, and is managed by the Oregon Department of Education.  Anyone can nominate a candidate for the recognition, but teachers may not nominate themselves.  Once selected, the Oregon Teacher of the Year is also a candidate to apply for the National Teacher of the Year recognition.  The selected teacher serves as the face and voice of exemplary educators across the state of Oregon, and engages and inspires other teachers and community leaders as a representative of the profession.

The Oregon Department of Education chose to expand the selection process for the 2018-19 nominees.  The goal of the expansion is to honor teachers in every region of the state.  Education Service Districts across Oregon reviewed applications submitted from their geographic region and facilitated a Blue Ribbon Panel and review process to identify winners in their regions.  Thirteen winners will go on to be considered for Oregon Teacher of the Year, which will be decided in September.

Southern Oregon Education Service District is proud of the amazing teachers in our three county region, exemplified by Mr. Bryant, that are focused on quality teaching, learning, and student achievement.
