Individual Teachers of the Year have been announced by Wayne County Public Schools.
The 33 teachers for 2009-10 will compete for the district-wide honor, which will be announced in late summer.
Educators chosen from each school will complete portfolios that will be submitted to the Teacher of the Year selection committee.
