THE EVENING News’ Teacher of the Year contest is now in full swing - and we want you to nominate your favourite!

The competition rewards the best and most deserving teacher in the Scarborough area.

Last year, Angela Smith, from St Martin’s Primary School, scooped the title after beating more than 55 fellow classroom heroes.

Mrs Smith was overwhelmed at her victory, and thanked her pupils for making her role so enjoyable.

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.”

Mrs Smith was put forward by Grace Mellor, Joshua Rigg and Benjamin Walters-Hardy.

Benjamin said: “Mrs Smith once built a den for us in the classroom and I love the sports she teaches us.

“She also gives us stamps good work.”

The prize aims to honour the teacher who makes school fun and takes pupils on fun trips.

We want you to nominate your teacher for the award by highlighting the great work they have done.

Perhaps they have they made your time at school better or given you good advice to improve your grades?

Maybe your teacher has taken on an after school club or set up a sports 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 on the right with your letter.

We will publish a supplement, with all nominations and pictures of the teacher and class, and present the winning teacher with a framed certificate. The closing date is Friday June 22.
