Spring is an exciting time of year at Indianapolis Public Schools; it’s when each school recognizes one of their most inspiring, innovative and all-around amazing teachers! All of our schools are invited to select a Teacher of the Year – this educator is not only honored for their hard work within the school, but they are now eligible for district, state and, perhaps, national recognition!

Please join us in congratulating the building-level Teachers of the Year for 2015:
