Wy’east Teacher Receives Honor

Wy’east Middle School industrial technology teacher Patrick Getchis has been named the Columbia Gorge’s 2021 Regional Teacher of the Year in the program put on by the Oregon Department of Education and the Oregon Lottery.  Oregon educators are identified through a regional application and selection process facilitated by local Education Service Districts.  Applicants submitted testimonials and letters of support and were assessed on leadership, instructional expertise, community involvement, understanding of educational issues, professional development and vision by a diverse panel of regional representatives.  Each Regional Teacher of the Year receives a $500 award from the Oregon Lottery, and is automatically considered for the honor of 2021 Oregon Teacher of the Year which will be announced this fall.  Getchis has been a teacher for fifteen years.
