The Magnolia School Board recognized East Side Elementary School music teacher Bailey Coburn as the 2020 District Teacher of the Year at its regular meeting on Monday.
Superintendent John Ward read Coburn's biography and then presented her with a plaque of recognition.
Coburn will now represent the Magnolia School District in the Arkansas Teacher of the Year (ATOY) competition. Arkansas regional finalists will be announced the week of July 3-8.
Regional finalists will also attend a reception ceremony at the Governor's Mansion in Little Rock on July 31, where the four ATOY finalists will be announced.
During the fall of 2020, the ATOY selection panel will visit the finalists' schools for classroom observation and interviews. The 2021 Arkansas Teacher of the Year will be announced sometime prior to December 20, 2020.
