MD TOY Gala, October 12, 2019

Posted by RHONDA MOORE on 1/14/2019

The MD TOY Gala has been called the "Oscars" for teachers. It was truly a special night to recognize the great things happening in education in Maryland. I am so grateful that my friends and family came to celebrate with me. We enjoyed a delicious meal of salmon and filet, and lots of speeches by politicians honoring the contributions of teachers. I truly believe that the vast majority of people value and appreciate what we do. It is my sincere hope that every teacher knows that.

Dr. Kane, Superintendent of Schools for Queen Anne's County and one of the nicest, hardest working women you will ever meet!



Back in early summer, I was interviewed at MPT for my one minute of fame at the TOY Gala! You can watch the VIDEO here.



Each teacher walked in with his or her superintendent and was recognized on stage by Dr. Salmon and Congressman Anthony Brown.

The high point of the night was the announcement of the Maryland State Teacher of the Year 2018-19, Dr. Richard Warren, of Somerset County. He is a spirited, intelligent, and committed young man with strong values. I am proud to have him represent our cohort!


It truly was a special night and I am already looking forward to attending the gala in 2019!
