Anyone may nominate a full-time certified teacher for this honor - he or she just needs to have five years of teaching experience, with two of those years being served here at JCPS. For more information, call the JCPS Foundation, at 573-659-3743.
This award, along with the Outstanding Educator Award, is sponsored, through the JCPS Foundation, by Don and Linda Eisinger. Mrs. Eisinger (pictured above), a long-time educator at North Elementary and West Elementary, was the 2004 JCPS Teacher of the Year. She then went on to be the 2005 Missouri State Teacher of the Year. Mrs. Eisinger retired from JCPS in 2011.
