HamCo District Teacher and School-Related Employee Announced

Jasper — On Wednesday, Dec. 18, Hamilton County Superintendent of Schools Thomas Moffses and Director of Administrative Services Philip Pinello announced Hamilton County’s Teacher of the Year and School-Related Employee of the Year.

“We surprised two well-deserving employees this afternoon by appearing at their school and announcing their selections as Hamilton County’s 2015 Teacher of the Year and 2014 School-Related Employee of the Year,” said Moffses.

Third grade teacher at Central Hamilton Elementary Joanie Blue was selected as Teacher of the Year and paraprofessional Amanda Wiggins, also at Central, was selected as School-Related Employee of the Year. 

“Earlier this month, 12 individuals were chosen by their peers to represent their respective work sites,” said Moffses. “A selection committee had the difficult task of determining the two individuals it felt would best serve as the district’s representatives.”

There will be an awards program/reception on Monday, March 10,  at 5 p.m. in the Hamilton County High School cafeteria to honor all the district’s selections.

“Congratulations to all of our representatives and thank you for your dedication to the students of Hamilton County!” said Moffses.
