This past weekend we had the pleasure of attending a Kansas Teacher of the Year luncheon hosted at the Salina Country Club. It was there we learned that Shannon Ralph is the Region 1 Kansas Teacher of the Year nominee!
Each year there are many nominations made across the state, and within each of the four regions of the state a number of teachers are chosen to advance to the regional selection. From there a committee chooses three semifinalists, and then one finalist. Shannon will now advance to the state level to compete with seven other teachers for the honor of Kansas Teacher of the Year.
You can read more about the award and the region 1 finalists at the story published in the Hutch News here.
We are all super proud of Shannon and all the great things she continues to do working with Dodge City students.
