HARTFORD — Who will be Hartford’s teacher of the year?
That question will be answered on May 25 at the annual Hartford Public School Teacher of the Year banquet to be held at the Society Room downtown.
After an intensive screening and interview process by a district-wide committee, three teachers were selected last week as finalists.
The committee of Hartford Public School curriculum directors, the teachers union and two former winners selected Corinne Clark, a sixth grad teacher at Clark Elementary School and a Kappa Delta Pi; Timothy R. Clemens Jr., a seventh an eight-grade social studies teacher at Naylor Elementary School and Tracy Weisel, a special education and reading teacher at the Hartford Journalism and Media Academy at Weaver High School. Each teacher has worked in the district for at least seven years.
Nominees, among to her things, had to be tenured K-12 teachers in Hartford schools, had to exhibit exemplary teaching skills and show commitment to the belief that all children can learn. They also had to show that they are active in the community and humanitarian affairs, school officials said.
