Wayne County schools have chosen 30 teachers to move to the head of the class.
Each of the district's 31 schools nominated a candidate to compete for the honor of being Wayne County Public Schools' Teacher of the Year. From that pool, evaluators will select one finalist for the elementary, middle and high school levels.
The 2005-06 Teacher of the Year will be announced at the annual banquet Aug. 18.
The teacher selected to represent the county will go on to compete at the regional level.
Each finalist will also receive a $5,000 Twiford Travel Award to travel to a country outside the United States. The Goldsboro Rotary Club established the award in memory of C.W. Twiford, former principal of Goldsboro High School. Individuals and businesses contribute to grant funds.
The program enhances the teachers' global perspective, which then transfers to students in the form of exciting lessons and classroom experiences.
"We are fortunate to have a program of such caliber in Wayne County Public Schools," Superinten-dent Dr. Steven Taylor said. "The opportunities the travel experience opens to our teachers are invaluable to their personal and professional development."
Taylor also said teachers chosen this year represent the best of their profession and have demonstrated a commitment to helping their students advance.
