Yep, I’ve got another list-heavy item from the HPISD front, but this one’s a little cheerier than GPA-policy revisions and relatively tight budget lines. The school district has just announced its 2012-2013 Teachers of the Year.
- Betsy Bogdovitz – second grade, Armstrong Elementary
- Kristen Fisher – fourth grade, Bradfield Elementary
- Kristan Perryman – first grade, Hyer Elementary
- Leigh Ann Mewhirter – first grade, University Park Elementary
- Ericca Vandagriff – fifth-grade science, McCulloch Intermediate
- Sarah McMullen – seventh-grade science, HPMS
- Jay Harris – law, criminal justice, and business teacher; head athletic trainer at Highland Park High School
Honorees get $1,000 each from the HP Education Foundation, plus a month’s use of a Volkswagen from Boardwalk Park Cities Volkswagen (A Jetta? A Beetle? I couldn’t tell you. But a Google image search just pulled up this strangely gorgeous thing, which is probably reserved for Teacher of the Century) .
