Teacher of the Year 2016

David Coss!

Congratulations to David Coss - Hamden's 2015-16 Teacher of the Year! 


Congratulations to Hamden High School Social Studies teacher David Coss, who has been named Hamden's 2016 Teacher of the Year! Mr. Coss' strong teaching skills, dedication, content knowledge, and wonderful personality make a real difference to our students and staff.

Mr. Coss was named a semi-finalist in the state Teacher of the Year competition! We are so lucky to have him on our team! 


The Hamden Teacher of the Year honor is an annual award. Teachers in each school nominate and select from their staff one exemplary teacher, who then "competes" among other schools' nominees in front of a district panel.  The committee then makes the final selection for our Teacher of the Year.  

The Hamden Teacher of the Year represents our district at the state-level Teacher of the Year competition.
