VanDyke VAME Teacher of the Year

Heather VanDyke of Briar Woods High School has been named one of three finalists for the Virginia Association of Marketing Educators (VAME) Teacher of the Year.

The award will be presented August 1st at the VAME annual conference in Williamsburg.  Teachers are nominated for the honor by a fellow teacher, administrator, student or business person.  The nominees then submit a detailed resume, and three finalists are selected from the nominees.

The finalists prepare a binder of evidence related to their marketing instruction and letters of recommendation.  The binders are reviewed by a panel of retired teachers.  Those retired teachers also interview the finalists to select the winner.
