The finalists were selected by a review committee made up of members of the Rome/Floyd Retired Educators Association. The committee made the selections from written applications submitted by the teacher of the year representatives from each school in the Floyd County school system. Questions asked in the application were taken from the Georgia "Teacher of the Year" application form. The review committee will also make the final selection of Teacher of the Year for Floyd County Schools from the three finalists.
The three top teachers will continue in the selection process to determine the 2015 Teacher of the Year for Floyd County Schools. The process will include a personal interview and a classroom observation of each teacher working with students. The interviews will be held on Thursday, September 18, 2014 at the Floyd County Board of Education Office on Riverside Parkway. The selection process will conclude on Wednesday, September 24 with classroom observations.
