Teacher of the Year Program
The Kirkwood Teachers of the Year program is designed by teachers to honor and recognize the efforts of all Kirkwood School District teachers. The program is reviewed each year by a selection committee of representatives from each of the nine schools. The committee's objective is to provide an opportunity for all staff in the Kirkwood School District to honor a Teacher of the Year from their individual building.
Please note: The nominee must be a certified full-time classroom teacher, grades Pre-K through 12, career and technical educator, guidance counselor, library media specialist, or hold a similar position and is actively engaged in classroom teaching. School personnel whose major responsibility is administrative or supervisory is ineligible.
The 2022-23 Teachers of the Year are: Susan Tiffany (KECC), Katie Lorenz (Keysor), Julie Pritchard (North Glendale), Laura Grayson (Robinson), Elizabeth Curtis (Tillman), Adrienne Fox-Ray (Westchester), Scott Warren (Nipher), Kristin Siebert (North Kirkwood), and Katie Meyers (Kirkwood High S chool). Katie Meyers, Kirkwood High School Language Arts teacher, was selected as the Kirkwood School District Teacher of the Year for 2022-23. Katie was selected through an interview process conducted by the Teacher of the Year selection committee.
