Watauga Board Of Education Honors Teachers, Student (2016-11-16 14:51:55)

Several honors were handed out at the most recent Watauga Board of Education meeting.

In the far left photo,  WHS French teacher Heather Tedder was recognized by the board after she was selected as an ‘Incredible World Language Teacher’ by the Foreign Language Association of North Carolina in October. Amanda Romjue, who nominated Tedder for the award said, ‘Heather Tedder is one of those teachers who is so engaging and entertaining, that you may feel like you need to buy a ticket to be in her classroom.’

In the right photo, Hardin Park AIG teacher Emily Rothrock and fourth-grade teacher Jessie Presnell-Greene are with Hardin Park fourth-grader Sam Nystrom, who was recognized by the board after his victory in the county-wide spelling bee.

In the large group photo at top, more than 20 Watauga County Schools teachers were on hand at the Board of Education meeting to take receipt of Watauga Education Foundation Grants.
