Hampshire County Schools participate in the Teacher of the Year
recognition program. The county teacher of the year is chosen from among nominees chosen by each school in the county. The candidates complete written applications describing their classroom practices, motivation to become a teacher, and philosophy of education. Following interviews, the county teacher of the year is named at the Employee Recognition Ceremony held annually in June.
Once the county honoree is named, the teacher submits an application packet to the West Virginia Department of Education. Several finalists are then chosen by WVDE from among the various county applicants to be interviewed. The WV Teacher of the Year
is named in September of each year to represent WV in the National Teacher of the Year competition.
