NSTOY History

Preceding the National Network of State Teachers of the Year,  the National State Teachers of the Year (NSTOY) served as the home for State Teachers of the Year following their year of service. Founded in 1980, NSTOY has a rich history, and honors the individuals that developed and define NNSTOY as it stands today.
