Background and Summary: All public and accredited nonpublic schools are invited to participate in the Mary V. Bicouvaris Virginia Teacher of the Year Program. This award honors teachers who represent the best in teaching in the Commonwealth of Virginia and across the nation. Since 1964, Virginia has participated in the National Teacher of the Year Program, a project of the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). In 2006, Virginia’s Teacher of the Year Program was renamed in honor of the 1989 Virginia and National Teacher of the Year, Dr. Mary V. Bicouvaris. Charlottesville City Schools began participating in this program in 2023.

Dr. Katina Otey, Chief Academic Officer, will recognize the Teachers of the Year for each Charlottesville City School. These teachers were nominated and selected at the school level by their colleagues. A committee then worked to review submissions by each candidate in order to identify a Division Teacher of the Year.Each Teacher of the Year will be recognized at the February School Board meeting.
