Key to the Classroom 2023

  • SSD's teaching staff is widely known to be among the best in our state. Their dedication to our students is extraordinary and the collective impact of their expertise is evident in our students' success.

    The Key to the Classroom award celebrates the profound effect these teachers have had on the lives of their students and colleagues, as noted in their nominations submitted by SSD families, colleagues, and community members. Each nomination was carefully considered by a judging panel of SSD administrators. These 10 outstanding educators were then given the opportunity to be considered as candidates for SSD's Teacher of the Year. 

    Congratulations to this year's Key to the Classroom award winners and our Teacher of the Year!
