The 38th Annual Educator of the Year Awards Banquet will be held at the Q Center, 1405 North Fifth Avenue in St. Charles on May 3, 2013. This awards banquet provides an opportunity to honor outstanding members of the education profession in Kane County and promote the awareness of the quality education being provided in our schools. Special recognition is also given to those retiring from education.
Local nominating committees consisting of teachers and administrators nominate educators throughout the county. Those nominated are seen as having the respect and admiration of students, parents, and co-workers. They play active and useful roles in their communities and schools, often distinguishing themselves as leaders.
Those honored represent the dedicated service found in all of the staff throughout Kane County. This program has received enthusiastic support from regional educators, and several Kane County award recipients have been selected by the Illinois State Board of Education as outstanding teachers in Illinois.
