Teacher of the Year process

The WBLAE Teacher of the Year committee is proud to recognize the over 600+ educators of White Bear Lake Area Educators, Local #7286 as this year’s Honorary Teachers of the Year (2020-21) for their extraordinary dedication to their students and their families during emergency distance learning this past spring and their efforts this school year.

Additionally, please join us in celebrating the professional excellence of the 2021-22 class of nominees which also includes all nominees who submitted teacher surveys as part of the 2020-21 selection process. In accordance with Education Minnesota’s Teacher of the Year Program, eligible nominees now have the opportunity to submit written responses to a series of questions regarding teaching and learning and their personal educational philosophies. From those responses, six finalists will be selected to interview with members of the community, administration and their fellow teachers.
