Teachers Honored

Congratulations to Kirsten Minton, who teaches second grade students at Wilson,  on being selected by her peers as the Wilson Teacher of the Year. Larissa Hale, who teaches fifth graders, was selected as the Rising Star Teacher, a recognition for outstanding teachers with less than five years of experience.

The honorees will be celebrated at a public program on Thursday, April 18 at 5:30 p.m. on Rigdon Field at Doenges Memorial Stadium in a fun baseball-themed Bruins of the Year event sponsored by the Bartlesville Public Schools Foundation. The District Teacher of the Year and District Rising Star Teacher will be announced amidst other recognitions.

The program will also include the announcement of the Kurt Schmoldt Teacher Appreciation Award recipient; nominations for that award are open to the public and due February 29.
