Each year the Kansas State Department of Education sponsors a statewide competition looking for an outstanding teacher to become its Teacher of the Year. The Spring Hill School District is given the opportunity to nominate an elementary and secondary teacher to compete at the state level. This also provides the district the opportunity to recognize teachers at all buildings who exemplify the finest in the profession.

"We are honored to recognize these outstanding teachers who exemplify excellence in their field," said Dr. Wayne Burke, superintendent. 

Each building established a review committee to select their nominee for the district competition. The following teachers were nominated by their peers and selected for excellence in teaching at their buildings. 
  • Prairie Creek Elementary School - Jennifer Schenk
  • Wolf Creek Elementary School - Erica Book
  • Spring Hill Elementary School - Cassity Wooten
  • Spring Hill Middle School - Whitney Smith
  • Spring Hill High School - Renee Stallbaumer

Wooten and Stallbaumer will represent the district in the statewide competition. This competition requires preparing an extensive packet, which includes essays on teaching philosophy, professional background, community involvement, student learning activities and more. If selected at the state level, they will serve as an ambassador for and work to support ongoing school improvement education in Kansas.
