Who has been go­ing the ex­tra mile in class­rooms across Scar­bor­ough and Fi­ley? Now is your chance to place your nom­i­na­tion for the pres­ti­gious Teacher of the Year award.

Ev­ery year The Scar­bor­ough News in­vite lo­cal young­sters to vote for their top teacher.

We want to hear about all those spe­cial ed­u­ca­tors who make the ef­fort to go the ex­tra mile to make a dif­fer­ence in schools in the Scar­bor­ough and Fi­ley area.

The an­nual awards aims to high­light the dif­fer­ence that our teach­ers can make to the lives of pupils.

Last year’s win­ner was Michaela Chalk, an early years lead teacher, who was the first Fi­ley-based re­cip­i­ent of the award.

Mrs Chalk, who had been based at Fi­ley CR Nurs­ery and In­fants Academy for eight years, said: “Many thanks for this won­der­ful award, I can­not stop smil­ing.

“I am ab­so­lutely shocked and stunned. I have the best job in the world.

“The chil­dren make ev­ery day worth­while.” Her nom­i­nees de­scribed her as a “real-life su­per­hero” and com­mended her for pro­vid­ing “the best start to school life”. While an­other said “she has trans­formed the nurs­ery school over her time and al­ways looks out for ev­ery child”.

Pre­vi­ous win­ners have been com­mended for tak­ing chil­dren on spe­cial trips and let­ting their kind and caring na­ture shine through to al­ways make lessons fun.

Teach­ing the next gen­er­a­tion is an im­por­tant job which takes a great deal of time and ef­fort. The Scar­bor­ough News wants to en­sure our teach­ers get the recog­ni­tion they de­serve.

Do you or your child have a teacher that should be in the run­ning for the pres­ti­gious ti­tle?

To vote, fill in the form be­low and re­turn it to us ac­com­pa­nied by a brief let­ter ex­plain­ing why your teacher should win.

The dead­line for en­tries is Fri­day June 8. You can also en­ter by email (sub­ject line should read Teacher of the Year plus the school name) or con­tact us via our Face­book page to place your nom­i­na­tion.

All en­tries will be pub­lished in The Scar­bor­ough News and the win­ner will be an­nounced at the end of the school year.

If you have any queries please con­tact us by email­ing news­desk@jpress.co.uk or call us on (01723) 860160.
