Meredith Celebrates Alumnae Teachers of the Year
As the traditional end of the school year approaches, Meredith College congratulates all alumnae selected as teachers of the year in their schools or school districts.
Meredith College has a long history of preparing teachers who excel and who are recognized by their communities. This year the following alumnae are among those who earned the distinction of Teacher of the Year:
• Katy Bridges;
• Amy Smith Brooks;
• Jasmine Hart;
• Jennifer Facciolini;
• Angie King Jarman;
• Kara Duckett McLendon; and
• Jaime Morris Pearman.
Tamra Dunstan and Andrea Underwood, students in Meredith’s Master of Education program also were selected as teachers of the year at their schools.
Dunstan, who was nominated as Yates Mill Elementary’s teacher of the year, said the nomination was an honor.
“I work with a strong group of educators and it feels excellent to know that I have their support and high regard,” Dunstan said. “Being Teacher of the Year confirms that I am making a difference in the lives of the students I work with daily, and is reassurance that I chose the right career.”
In addition to its undergraduate teacher education program, Meredith College offers two graduate degree programs in education – the Master of Education for experienced teachers, and the Master of Arts in Teaching for those interested in preparing to enter the profession.
