Praise for Henry County’s school-level teachers of the year

-A A +A

Tammy Nash @ New Castle Elementary School

“Tammy epitomizes what a master teacher is,” Principal Austin Hunsaker said. “She is data driven, thoughtful, flexible and willing to take on any challenge. What is most impressive is her desire to meet each and every student on an individual level. She ensures that each child receives what they need. Her work even extends into the community. She has assisted or led multiple literacy projects that have involved the community. Simply put, she is an integral piece to New Castle Elementary and our school is immensely better with her here.”

Laura Adams @ Henry County High School

“The embodiment of Henry County High School is exampled in Laura Adams,” Principal Shannon Sageser said. “Mrs. Adams is the definition of a teacher. Her passion for teaching is exemplified on a daily basis. Mrs. Adams simply loves her students and they love her back. When you walk into her classroom, you feel the energy as students are engaged in learning. Mrs. Adams is not only a great teacher but a great leader. Her willingness to work with her high school family is second to none. One could ask, why is Mrs. Adams such a fantastic educator, I would simply say, it’s in her DNA.”

Johnathan Rogers @ Henry County Middle School

“Jonathan is a teacher that knows his content and gets results on testing,” Principal Lucia Hughes. “He knows how to reach kids, even the most difficult. He takes the time to build strong relationships with his students, relationships that stick long after they leave HCMS. We are blessed to have him as part of our HCMS family!”

Kim Patterson @ Henry County Early Education Center

“Kim Patterson is the first experience of education for her students and families,” said Principal Stephanie Melton. “Kim is the definition of a dedicated teacher. She creates a stable bridge for families and works diligently with them to help get their children adjusted to school. Kim is a very reflective teacher and takes information that she gains from her students every day to plan for their tomorrow. Kim is really a true gift to HCECC. Kim uses the Reggio Emilia Approach in her classroom where learning is driven by the interest of the children. She encourages her students to use language to investigate and explore. She listens to her students with respect so that all questions and observations are considered an opportunity to learn and search together. It is an honor for me to have Kim Patterson represent HCECC as Teacher of the Year. Congratulations and well-deserved Kim!”

Meg Hook @ Campbellsburg Elementary School

“Meg has been an amazing addition to our CES family,” Principal Amy Treece said. “She is a problem solver and a dedicated educator who always has the best interest of her students at heart. She goes above and beyond to make learning meaningful and engaging in her classroom.” Kathy Potts @ Eastern Elementary School “In her 27 years of teaching, Ms. Potts has created a sense of community and belonging in her classroom,” said Principal Angie Denny. “She is warm, accessible, enthusiastic and caring. Ms. Potts has high expectations for all students and her love for learning is contagious.”
