Congressman Steny H. Hoyer recently hosted the annual Fifth District Educators of the Year Luncheon, held in honor of the outstanding teachers and principals in the community. Fifteen people were honored at the event, including The Washington Post’s Teacher of the Year and Principal of the Year finalists and County Teacher of the Year Award recipients for Anne Arundel, Prince George’s, Charles, Calvert, and St. Mary’s counties.

“I was pleased to honor outstanding educators in the Fifth District,” said Congressman Hoyer (D-Md., 5th). “I join in thanking them for the extraordinary work they do every day to educate and mentor students throughout our communities.” Hoyer said educators are at the forefront of efforts to build stronger communities.

“That’s why it so important that we invest in early childhood, elementary, and secondary education. I was proud that the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act included support for full service community schools, something we’ve championed in the state of Maryland,” he said.
