(FRANKFORT, Ky.) – Nine outstanding teachers from across the state – three elementary, three middle and three high school teachers – were named semifinalists for the 2018 Kentucky Teacher of the Year Award, the Kentucky Department of Education and ValvolineTM . Ryan New, Boyle County High School Social Studies teacher was named as one of the three semifinalists for the high school category.

Teacher semifinalists were chosen based on their scores from the first round of judging, which was conducted by a blue-ribbon panel of veteran educators. Applications included information on nominees’ teaching philosophies, teaching experiences, involvement in their respective communities and letters of recommendation. Classroom visits and personal interviews with each of the nine semifinalists resulted in the selection of the 2018 Elementary School, Middle School and High School Teachers of the Year. 

Congratulations Ryan!
