It’s Time to Celebrate Teachers

Nearly 30 top teachers from around Illinois are being honored at the governor’s mansion in Springfield. The Illinois State Board of Education as well as the state’s top teachers unions are hosting the luncheon today.

State Board of Education officials say teachers were chosen as the “best in their field of expertise” by a number of state and national professional education organizations and other groups and agencies. The Illinois Art Education Association, for instance, is giving out an award for its pick for best elementary art teacher of the year. The Illinois Farm Bureau is giving an award to its pick for the best agriculture teacher of the year.
