2023 EOY Nomination Form


Nominations for 2023 Educator of the Year are now closed. Nominations for next year will open in November 2023 and be accepted until 4:30pm on Friday, January 5, 2024.

Each year, TEF offers the opportunity for people in the community to nominate a teacher or Thompson School District staff person they feel exemplifies excellence in education. Awards are given in the following categories:

  • Elementary Teacher of the Year (early childhood - fifth grade)

  • Secondary Teacher of the Year (sixth grade - twelfth Grade)

  • Principal of the Year

  • TSD Staff of the Year (school secretaries, district administrative staff, counselors, custodians, transportation, etc.)

  • NEW in 2023: Rookie Teacher of the Year (a teacher new to the profession and with TSD for 18 months or less)


Awards will be made in each category and nominations in all categories (except Rookie of the Year) will be considered for the 2023 TEF Educator of the Year award.

Educator of the Year sponsor, King Buick GMC, feels the best way to give back to the community is through education support: building strong programs that will produce a highly trained workforce that can increase innovation and energy for American manufacturing. To honor Thompson School District educators, King Buick GMC provides a 24-month car lease to the overall

TEF Educator of the Year winner.
