Meet the 2019 Teacher of the Year finalists!

Out of a group of 137 local school Teachers of the Year named earlier this fall, then narrowed to 25 semifinalists, a selection committee had the difficult task to select this year's finalists. One of these six finalists will be named Gwinnett's 2018 Teacher of the Year at a banquet on November 8. Special thanks to this year's sponsors who make this celebration possible and help us to recognize all local school Teachers of the Year that evening.

To learn more about our finalists and the next steps in the process, read the news release and click on each finalist's name (below) for additional insight.
