  Teachers who meet the criteria for the award are those who instill in 
students a desire to learn and achieve, understand the individual needs 
of students, demonstrate a thorough knowledge of subject matter, and 
have the ability to share it effectively. The selected winner will be 
named the Prince William County Teacher of the Year.

Virginia, Prince William County Public Schools educates 90,000 students 
in ninety-eight schools, including sixty elementary schools, sixteen 
middle schools, twelve high schools, one Governor's school, three 
special education schools (one nontraditional school and two 
traditional schools), two special site schools, and one K-8 school.
  Each Teacher of the Year Award nominee exhibits excellence in 
teaching by serving as an effective leader in and out of the classroom, 
fostering strong rapport with parents and peers, and by providing a
