Seven Teachers Honored

Forsyth County Schools is down to seven of the best teachers for the annual Teacher of the Year Award.

The Forsyth County Teacher of the Year will be announced March 8 at the Celebration of Excellence at the Forsyth Conference Center at 11:30 am.  This year the district changed its annual award process to better reflect the state process.  The finalists this year total seven, when in the past the event had three, one from each school type.  The new system will allow the county to better honor more teachers.  With a school system that is filled with high-achieving students and hard-working teachers to be named one of the top seven is a real honor.  The finalist this year are:

  • Rhonda Slaughter, Matt Elementary School
  • Jackie Shirley, Silver City Elementary School
  • Jessica Nicholson, Whitlow Elementary School
  • Donna Jackson, North Forsyth Middle School
  • Kim Schreiver, South Forsyth Middle School
  • Amy Dykes, North Forsyth High School
  • Julie Hunt, South Forsyth High School
