Teachers have three loves: love of learning, love of learners, and the love of bringing the first two loves together.

MAYO — Lafayette County’s 2020 Teacher of the Year is Pam Moseley.
Moseley, a teacher at Lafayette Elementary School for four years, was selected for the honor after being interviewed and judged by a panel outside the district for the award.
Moseley, who has taught for 17 years overall, teaches fifth grade at LES and has built a rapport with her class. One of the reasons she was selected as Teacher of the Year was her willingness to adapt her education style to fit her students.
She received the honor last week by LES Principal Stephen Clark and Superintendent Robby Edwards. She was also surprised by the presence of her husband, Ralee, and their three children, Lilli, Mallory and Trevor.
The statewide teacher of the year recognition began in 1967, and goes to honor outstanding classroom educators within the state of Florida annually.
Prior to the statewide selection of teacher of the year and finalists, each district within the state selects its teacher of the year.
