The York County School Division Teacher of the Year Craig Reynolds has been named the Virginia Region II Teacher of the Year. YCSD leaders were joined by VDOE staff in making the surprise announcement during a school assembly this afternoon.

Reynolds, a fifth grade teacher at Magruder Elementary School, was selected from among the Teachers of the Year from 16 school divisions in the Hampton Roads area which comprise Region II. He joins seven other regional teachers of the year as finalists for the Virginia Teacher of the Year. The selection and announcement of the state honor is expected in May.

The winner will go on to represent Virginia in the Council of Chief State School Officer's National Teacher of the Year Program. There have been three previous national teachers of the year to hail from the Commonwealth.
