IT’S that time of the year again when we ask Scarborough youngsters to put their teacher top of the class!

The Evening News Teacher of the Year award is back and we want you to honour the most deserving teacher across Scarborough.

We have already had entries start to pour in, but we want you to put your favourite forward!

Angela Smith, from St Martin’s Primary School, wowed judges in last year’s contest to lift the crown ahead of 55 fellow teachers.

Mrs Smith, who was nominated by Grace Mellor, Joshua Rigg and Benjamin Walters-Hardy, was taken aback when reporter Steven Hugill visited the school to give her the good news.

She said: “I was shocked to find out I had won and it was such a wonderful feeling to be nominated by the children.

“The children are lovely to work with and we do a lot of interesting and outdoor lessons which they really enjoy.”

In previous years, we have received scores of entries from pupils proclaiming their teacher is the best around, with children citing a plethora of reasons for their nomination.

Does your teacher go the extra mile in helping to make difficult subjects easier to understand?

Perhaps they have given you good advice which has improved your grades and made your time in class more enjoyable?

Do they make lessons fun by taking you on special trips or using fun activities to explain the topic?

Maybe your teacher has taken on an after school club?

To enter you can write to us as an individual or a class, but there must only be one nomination per pupil for each teacher.

Include the entry form with your letter.

We will publish a supplement featuring all nominations, with pictures of children and their favourite classroom heroes.

The winner will be presented with a framed certificate and runners-up will also be rewarded.

The closing date is Friday, June 22.
