District Announcements
  • Teacher of the Year

Do you know a teacher who is dedicated, inspiring, and making a difference?

   The classroom teacher is the backbone of the American educational system. No one person has a greater impact on the education of a child than does the teacher who creates the primary learning and instructional environment.

   To nominate a teacher for the Bon Homme School District 4-2 Teacher of the Year Award, simply obtain a form from Karla Schoenfish, Bon Homme School District Secretary in Tyndall.

   On the form you will be asked to explain why you feel the educator you are nominating should be the District Teacher of the Year, citing specific examples. Some things to consider: the teacher’s methods for meeting student needs, desire for professional growth, community involvement, dedication to the teaching profession and rapport with students, parents and staff.

   Please note: A district teacher of the year candidate who wishes to be considered for region and state teacher of the year must: be a fully certified teacher; be employed by a South Dakota accredited school district - pre-kindergarten through grade 12; have at least three full years of teaching experience; be planning to continue in an active teaching status (supervisory and administrative responsibilities are secondary considerations) for at least two more years.

   For more information on the Teacher of the Year Program visit,

   The Bon Homme School District Teacher of the Year becomes eligible to apply for the Regional Teacher of the Year Award, and possibly for the South Dakota and/or the National Teacher of the Year Award. National Teacher of the Year requires the selected teacher to be teaching in the classroom at least four hours a day, for two years after being selected.

   Nomination deadline is February 26.
