Congratulations to the following educators on being selected as Teachers of the Year in Lexington Three for the 2019-2020 school year! The prestigious Teacher of the Year title is voted on annually by employees at each school.
Michelle Maroney, B-L Primary School -- Michelle just finished her second year of teaching in Lexington Three. She has served as a second grade teacher and will be a literacy coach during the 2019-2020 school year. She says the thing that she loves most about the district is the strong family feel that unites students and staff alike. She says she loves being a teacher because she is able to open the doors of discovery for students on a daily basis and help guide them down their own personalized path towards their life goals.
Kristen Pugh, B-L Elementary School -- Kristen wrapped up her second year of serving as the general music teacher at B-L Elementary School in May. She says the thing she loves most about Lexington Three is the students because she has the privilege of watching them grow, learn and succeed during the three short years that they attend BLES. She says the best thing about her role as a music teacher is that she’s able to work with every single child at the school and gets to see them blossom not only as a student, but as a musician as well.
Kimberly Lawson, B-L Middle School -- The 2019-2020 school year will mark Kimberly’s fifth year of teaching seventh grade English language arts and social studies in Lexington Three. She says she appreciates the strong support system that the B-L community has provided her and believes the best thing about working in the district is being able to help students follow their dreams and accomplish their goals. She says that even though she’s the teacher, she ends up learning just as much from her students as they learn from her.
Allison Cook, B-L High School -- Allison will be starting her fourth year of teaching science in Lexington Three this upcoming academic year. She says one of the things that stands out most to her about the district is the collaborative and supportive culture that’s created by her colleagues and the administrators at B-L High School. She believes the best thing about being a teacher is the relationships that she’s able to build with each of her students and the opportunity that the role affords her to watch students grow and realize their worth.
These four dedicated professionals will vie for the title of District Three Teacher of the Year this upcoming Fall.
