Chesapeake Reading Council
Chesapeake, Virginia

Reading Teacher of the Year (RTOY)


Each school is challenged to select its “most outstanding reading teacher.” This award recognizes a teacher whose commitment to literacy is exemplary and unparalleled.


This online form is designed to streamline the process and make it easy to submit your school's nomination.  Principals or Building Representatives should collect the required information and submit it using the form below.  Schools may select a RTOY who is a new member of CRC, however, RTOYs must have been a CRC member for at least the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 school years to be eligible for the city-wide RTOY honor.  Nominations are due by 3pm on October 23, 2017.


All of Chesapeake's RTOY candidates will be honored at the annual CRC Banquet on May 15, 2018.


The candidate who is selected to represent Chesapeake Reading Council for the state award will be notified and required to submit the VSRA's RTOY packet; our honoree will also be honored at the VSRA Conference in Richmond in March 2018.


PHOTO SUBMISSION:  A photo of each nominee is required and should be submitted via e-mail to after the form below is submitted.
