Educator of the Year Award

South Central Region of MSTA would like to recognize outstanding educators from our region.  Anyone who is now employed in the field of education in the South Central Region and is currently an MSTA member is eligible to be nominated for this year’s award.  Members of the MSTA South Central Region Executive Board may not be nominated.

We would like to encourage each CTA to nominate one elementary and one secondary outstanding educator that would represent your local school district.  If nominating a middle school teacher, the CTA can choose to place that teacher in either the elementary or secondary category depending on which best fits the situation.  The nominees will be recognized and South Central Region Educators of the Year will be announced at our evening convention in October.  Each winner will receive a $500 award, with a $50 award going to the nominating CTA.  There will be one winner from the elementary nominees and one from the secondary nominees.

To nominate an educator you will need:

  • Complete the electronic Nomination form below
  • Two letters of recommendation
    • One from a fellow educator
    • One from an administrator

Please submit all items by May 1!

 Please mail letters of recommendation to:

Joyce Hagen, Secretary
South Central District/MSTA
18876 St. Rt. M
Edgar Springs, MO 65462

Make sure that each letter is labeled with the name of the nominated CTA member. Thanks.
