Birdville ISD honors its
outstanding teachers from each of the district’s 33 campuses, along with one of the community’s private schools. BISD began
honoring its dedicated educators in 2001 with a Teacher of the Year Award
Banquet called the “Golden Gala.” In
keeping with this honored tradition, the even takes place every year at the Birdville Fine Arts/Athletics
Each year BISD endeavors to make the Gala an
event which reflects the devotion these educators render to both our children
and our community.
How are the BISD elementary, middle and high school Teachers of the Year selected?
Each year, applications from all 33 campus teachers of the year are submitted to the Business Education Success Team (BEST) Committee at the Northeast Tarrant Chamber of Commerce. The BEST Committee consists of local business and education leaders. BISD does not have a representative on this committee.
The Committee reviews each application and selects BISD's elementary, middle and high school teachers of the year. Because it is the District's desire for our outstanding teachers to be recognized at the regional and state levels, the application follows the same process and procedures that will ultimately lead to the Texas Teacher of the Year recognition.
