Marcy Doyle semi-finalist for Oregon Teacher of the Year
Communication Specialist Kristin Bigler, and the Doyle family made their way to Marcy Doyle’s classroom to present her with her $2,000 winnings for being a semi-finalist for the Oregon Teacher of the Year. “It’s a teacher parade!” exclaimed an excited 1st grader at Yaquina View Elementary watching this morning as the crowd passed.
Marcy Doyle teaches 2nd Grade at Yaquina View and has been an educator for 25 years. “We are so proud to have one of the very best teachers in the entire state of Oregon receive this recognition,” Dr. Gray explained to the class, “She teaches from her heart and loves each and every one of you. She wants you all to know how to read, and write, and do math, and social studies. In fact, she cares so much, and does such a great job she is being given an award! We are here today to thank her.”
The Oregon Teacher of the Year program is sponsored by the Oregon Department of Education in partnership with the Oregon Lottery. Teachers were assessed on leadership, instructional expertise, community involvement, understanding of educational issues, professional development and vision by a diverse panel of regional representatives. Each regional winner received a $500 award and was considered for 2019 Oregon Teacher of the Year.
The three runners-up for 2019 Oregon Teacher of the Year (Marcy Doyle from Lincoln County, Todd Jones from West Linn-Wilsonville, and Amy Korst from Willamina) received an additional $2,000 gift!
