2020-2021 Regional Teachers of the Year

Due to distance learning and building closures, this year's RTOY announcements were unique. In lieu of a traditional assembly or staff meeting, MDE asked each RTOY's administrator to devise a surprise announcement and film it to share. Below are short videos of each of the 2020-2021 RTOYs learning about their exceptional honor.
