HCPS ‘Teacher of the Year,’ ‘First Year Teacher of the Year’ announced

Henrico County Public Schools recently named Taylor Snow, a social studies teacher at Moody Middle School, as the winner of the 2013 Gilman Teacher of the Year Award, and Alexandra Mendez- Zfass, a teacher at Highland Springs Elementary, as the winner of the First Year Teacher of the Year Award. The two were honored earlier this month at the 2013 Gilman Teacher of the Year Awards Ceremony held at Glen Allen High School.

Snow believes “outstanding teaching does not emanate from exhaustive reading of pedagogical texts or a process-oriented checklist. Rather, it emerges from a true passion for the act of learning and teaching.”

Speaking of Mendez-Zfass, HSES Principal Shawnya Tolliver said, “The passion and enthusiasm Alex brings to the classroom are captivating for her students and the adults who have the pleasure of working with her or observing her in action.”

Gilman Teacher of the Year is an annual event that rewards teachers from across the county for their commitment to education. Teachers are nominated by their schools, and a panel of administrators and specialists judges their applications. The group judges applications based on a point system for evidence of professional development, school/community activities in and outside of the classroom, participation in professional organizations, and a professional beliefs essay. Finally, five teachers (one from each magisterial district) are nominated for the Gilman Teacher of the Year honor. All five nominees undergo an interview with the panel, and the winner is declared.

The First-Year Teacher of the Year process begins with administrator and faculty nominations followed by an application and essay by the nominee. A committee of six administrators and specialists reviews applications before selecting a winner.
