2022 Delaware Teacher Of The Year To Be Named

2022 Delaware Teacher Of The Year To Be Named



Twenty of the state’s top teachers – including Sussex Tech’s 2021 Teacher of the Year Stephanie Pegelow — will be honored at a celebration in October, when one of the educators will be named Delaware’s 2022 Teacher of the Year.

The candidates were nominated because of their superior ability to inspire students with a love of learning, exemplary demonstration of professional traits and strong sense of dedication and devotion to teaching.

The teacher chosen to become Delaware’s “State Teacher of the Year” will become Delaware’s nominee in the national program, a project of the Council of Chief State School Officers.

By action of the General Assembly, the Delaware Teacher of the Year will receive a $5,000 grant to use for the educational benefit of his or her students, as well as a personal grant of $3,000. Additionally, all nominees will receive a $2,000 grant from the state.

On the lighter side, this year the 20 nominees will be escorted to the award ceremony in collector cars (weather permitting). The parade will travel from the Capital District Office, starting at 6 p.m. Governor John Carney and Secretary of Education Susan Bunting will greet each car as it arrives and welcome the nominees to the ceremony. Media, including television and newsprint are expected to cover the parade and nominees’ arrival.
