The following teachers were selected by a committee of their peers--out of a phenomenal 63 nominations submitted by families, students and colleagues:  
“We have so many phenomenal teachers in the Troy School District and out of all of our nominations from students, parents and colleagues, these three rose to the top,” said Superintendent Richard Machesky, Ed. D. “They each do a tremendous job of building a world class learning environment in their classrooms and it’s clear that they have a tremendous impact on those around them.

We are extremely proud to have them represent the Troy School District as our Outstanding Teachers of the Year.”
