• Teacher of the Year

  • The Teacher of the Year Gala has been a long-standing, treasured tradition in Plano ISD because it honors the dedicated, heartfelt work of employees. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, Plano ISD is developing creative alternatives to in-person celebrations—because not celebrating our employees’ hard work is not an option. More information is forthcoming. In the meantime, here are some quick details:

    2021 Teacher of the Year Gala - Week of May 10

    This year’s Teacher of the Year celebration will include some online and social media elements, culminating in a virtual gala hosted via Zoom on Thursday, May 13, at 6:30 p.m. A more detailed schedule will be shared in the near future. Here are some additional details: 

    • All Teacher of the Year nominees will receive a special delivery to their campuses the week of May 10 to help create a festive celebration at home. We will provide hashtags and other details soon that will help the communications department share your at-home celebrations.
