Registration has been extended to Sept. 29 for the 8th annual golf tournament,.
We wanted to give one more shout out to some of the best educators in the business… the 2017-18 Local School Teachers of the Year (TOTY) for Gwinnett County Public Schools.
On this page, you’ll find a list of TOTYs noted alphabetically by school. You’ll also find links to slideshows with TOTY photos submitted by our schools. The photos are grouped by cluster.
These 138 TOTYs were selected by their peers to represent their schools. Next week, watch for the next step in the TOTY process as we announce this year’s semifinalists. Finalists will be named in mid-October, with our level and district winners honored at the Nov. 9 banquet.
Congratulations to you all!
