Congratulations to 2021 Teacher of the Year Todd Schnake! The announcement was made on May 3. A small group of District administrators surprised each recipient with the news, just before it was announced to the public. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there was no banquet event this year.

Schnake teaches speech and theatre at Ray-Pec High School. This is his 30th year of teaching - all in the Ray-Pec School District. The first two years, he taught at the middle school. This is his 28th year teaching at the high school.

He earned his bachelor's degree in education from the University of Central Missouri, a master's degree from UCM, and his education specialist degree from William Woods University. 

Schnake was also a finalist for Ray-Pec Teacher of the Year in 2005, 2011, and 2017. He was named Missouri State Thespian Teacher of the Year in 2006, and received the Speech and Theatre Association of Missouri's Outstanding Theatre Teacher award in the 2006-2007 school year. He was the National Federation of High Schools Missouri State Teacher of the Year for Speech, Debate, and Theatre during the 2014-2015 school year.
