Each year the Summit County Education Service Center recognizes an exemplary group of veteran and rookie educators from Summit County school districts. With the support of the College of Education and other generous sponsors, the Education Celebration dinner and awards ceremony honors these fine teachers. Nominated by their peers, administrators and students, and selected by a team comprised of a representative from each school district, the Teacher of the Year is chosen. The 2013 Teacher of the Year is Donna Houston, a business teacher from Twinsburg City Schools and a graduate of The University of Akron, College of Education. View photos
