Each year, the North Carolina Association of Gifted and Talented, or NCAGT, recognizes the state’s Outstanding Teacher of the Gifted. New Hanover County Schools will nominate one district representative for this award. Nominations may be made by a student, teacher, administrator, or community member. The nomination form is located on the NHCS AIG website. Here are the criteria required by NCAGT for eligibility:
This award is presented to teachers of gifted children/youth who exhibit a strong commitment to gifted education through professional experiences, professional organizations, and service in the area of gifted education. The nominee must be endorsed by the state of North Carolina to teach gifted students and must currently be teaching with at least three years of teaching experience. (This may include regular classroom teachers, consultation teachers, or AIG teachers.) Nominees must be members of NCAGT. Each school district is eligible to nominate one candidate from its system for the NC Gifted Teacher of the Year. Nominees may not have previously been winners of NCAGT’s Outstanding Teacher Award. Only one nominee will be selected as the NCAGT Outstanding Teacher of the Year.
Teachers accepting the nomination will fill out the NCAGT application, which will be anonymously reviewed by AIG staff and Gifted Advisory Council members. The district nominee for NCAGT’s Outstanding Teacher of the Gifted will be notified by November 21st and will submit the application and references to NCAGT. Finalists for the state award will be notified in January 2014, and NCAGT will announce the winner at the annual conference February 27-28, in Winston Salem.
