Mary Dolan, Brian Mangold and Alice Noyes were nominated by their school districts for the Contra Costa County Teacher of the Year honor. The three teachers will go through a process that includes interviews, classroom observations, a speech and an application screening. The Contra Costa County Teacher of the Year will then be decided based on these factors and will be announced at an awards dinner in September.
Dolan is the Bilingual Specialist at Del Rey Elementary School in Orinda. Mangold is a Special Education teacher at Stanley Middle School in Lafayette. Alice Noyes is a fifth grade teacher at Donald Rheem Elementary School in Moraga.
