|My grandmother and I at the 2014-2015 Cumberland County Schools Teacher of the Year Banquet.|
Needless to say, I was beyond shocked when it was announced in May 2014 that I had been selected as the Teacher of the Year for my school. I was finishing my 4th year, and it was my first year of eligibility. I was/am extremely proud to represent the wonderful and dedicated individuals of South View Middle.
This summer, I spent countless hours creating my portfolio for the competition in anticipation of my attendance area interview. The interview went very well, and I was selected as the Teacher of the Year for the South View District. View the following video and pictures to discover the developments of the county-wide competition.
