We all hold fond memories of favorite teachers. Perhaps you had an English teacher whose animated personality brought literary characters to life? Or did you have a math teacher who explained the problem in just the right way, leading to an “aha” moment? These teachers exist throughout our hallways and classrooms embodying the heart of our schools, working long after the last bell rings tutoring students, running after-school clubs and always looking for new ways to teach a lesson. There are thousands of teachers in St Johns County who work hard to maintain the standards of excellence that keep SJCSD performing at an “A” level.
This year we want to congratulate the finalists for Teacher of the Year 2017-2018.
- Amy Grimm, 1st grade teacher at Julington Creek Elementary
- Jonathan Higgins, IB Psychology teacher at Pedro Menendez High School
- Kathleen Hunting, 2nd grade teacher at Osceola Elementary School
- Chassity Johnson, 8th grade mathematics teacher at Sebastian Middle
Each year, INK! celebrates the outstanding teachers in the district. Commemorate the magic with us on January 24, 2018, at The World Golf Renaissance Center from 6-9pm. Tickets are available at www.ink-stjohns.org.
