Jensen now in the running for 2023 Oregon Teacher of the Year

With passion, commitment, and innovation at the heart of their work even through extraordinary circumstances, 16 teachers have been selected from across the state of Oregon as 2023 Regional Teachers of the Year.

Highland Elementary second/third-grade teacher Amanda Jensen has been named Multnomah Education Service District’s 2023 Regional Teacher of The Year! Jensen wins a $1,000 cash prize from the Oregon Lottery and is in the running for Oregon’s 2023 Teacher of the Year – to be announced in just a few short weeks.

“Amanda Jensen believes in the capacity of each of her students to succeed,” said Gresham-Barlow Superintendent James Hiu. “She empowers students to find their voice and inspires in them a love of learning. She is the epitome of an exceptional, professional educator.”

Regional Teachers of The Year are nominated by students, colleagues, administrators, friends, or family members to apply for the award, and are selected by a diverse panel of regional representatives. Later this fall, one of the Regional Teachers of the Year will be named the 2023 Oregon Teacher of the Year.

Thanks to the Oregon Department of Education’s partnership with the Oregon Lottery, the 2023 Oregon Teacher of the Year receives a $10,000 cash prize, $5,000 is also awarded to their school, and they serve as a spokesperson and representative for all Oregon teachers. Three finalists will receive $2,000 with a matching $2,000 going to their school. Please visit for more information or to nominate a deserving teacher for 2024.
