Emporia State University established the Kansas Master Teacher Award in 1953 to be presented to earnest and conscientious teachers. To be eligible, a teacher must have served at least five years in Kansas schools, exemplified teaching or administrative effectiveness and demonstrated the attitudes and abilities specified in the National Education Association’s Code of Ethics of the Educational Professional.
In January, a selection committee will choose seven Kansas applicants as award recipients. Only one person from a district can be selected as a Master Teacher. Selected teachers are recognized during a special Kansas Master Teacher Recognition Day at Emporia State University. Each 2018 winner will receive a $1,000 award from Bank of America to be used for professional development.
