The teachers at each of the schools in the Bartlesville Public Schools district have selected their respective Teachers of the Year and Rising Star Teachers. Rising Star Teachers are those with less than five years of teaching experience.
Each site's honorees will be celebrated at a public program on Thursday, April 6 on Rigdon Field at Doenges Memorial Stadium in a fun baseball-themed event starting at 5:30 p.m. when the District Teacher of the Year and District Rising Star Teacher will be announced.
The program will also include recognition of the Kurt Schmoldt Teacher Appreciation Award recipient; nominations for that award are open to the public and due February 22.
