Congratulations to Our 2023 Educator of the Year & Zizzer Champion of the Year!

The West Plains School District presents two staff awards each year – the Educator of the Year and the Zizzer Champion of the Year. Teachers and staff all across the West Plains School District educate and empower kids of all ages. We've asked parents, students, colleagues, and community members to tell us which teachers and staff have made a difference in their lives or their children's lives. The district received several excellent nominations, narrowing the list to the Top 2. This morning, we congratulated our 2023 Educator and Zizzer Champion of the Year. Congratulations to the Zizzer Champion of the Year, Kenny Baker, district maintenance, and Educator of the Year, Angela Phipps, West Plains Elementary 4th Grade Teacher. 🎉 🎈


Congratulations to each of you, and thank you for everything you do for our kids! 


We are blessed with the best educators and support staff and are so proud of our team! Let's finish the year strong.
