A delegation from the school division’s central office made its rounds, Friday, with a surprise for three teachers.
Each year Bedford County Public Schools chooses three teachers, elementary, middle school and high school as Teacher of the Year for the school year that is just about to end. One of them is also designated the county-wide Teacher of the Year. Candidates for this honor are nominated by their colleagues and the nominations are reviewed by a panel of teachers. The winners are surprised in person the morning after the decision is made.
