School sites in the Owasso Public Schools District announced their 2023-24 Teacher of the Year Award recipients this week, as the district continued its tradition of recognizing excellence in the classroom through the State of Oklahoma Teacher of the Year program.
All certified teachers who have completed the past three consecutive years in the Owasso Public School District may be considered for this honor. Each Teacher of the Year nominee is selected by their peers to represent their building at the district level. One of the 15 site winners will be selected as the OPS Teacher of the Year by a district peer committee based on a self-submitted portfolio, as well as a live presentation with each candidate.
