What is a high-quality teacher? Through the Annual Teacher of the Year EDDY Awards program, the Jacksonville Public Education Fund has access to the Duval County public school teacher each school nominates to represent them as the best of the best. From the 2017-2018 school-level Teachers of the Year, three key themes emerged to answer the question of what it means to be a high-quality educator. From their responses—a high-quality teacher should be able to (1) understand the individual needs of their students, (2) build strong relationships with students and their families and (3) drive positive academic results.
