HISD will be announcing its Elementary and Secondary Teachers of the Year during the district’s annual Celebration of Excellence on Friday, May 15.

The ceremony won’t start until 6 p.m. that evening, so be sure to follow us on Twitter or visit the district’s website after the event concludes at 8 p.m. to see who won the titles for 2015.

You can see a list of the ten finalists (along with a photo gallery of most of them in action) here.

Also announced that night will be the “Fan Favorite,” a new category of recognition created this year to honor the people’s choice for the most-liked campus-based Teacher of the Year. People began voting for their favorites on May 1, and you can see a list of the six finalists here.
