Gloucester Educational Foundation announces Teacher of the Year
The Gloucester County Public Schools Educational Foundation is pleased to announce that Megan Harris has been selected as the Division Teacher of the Year for Gloucester County Public Schools.

Mrs. Harris, teaches 7th grade math, pre-algebra, and algebra I at Peasley Middle School.  Mrs. Harris earned her Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics degree at Christopher Newport University in 2006 and began teaching in Gloucester County Public Schools.  During that time, she has earned her Virginia Teaching License through the University of Virginia and University of Phoenix, as well as her Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction through the College of William and Mary.  Mrs. Harris, was also selected as the middle school Teacher of the Year for the division.

Two other finalists, Christine Keene from Abingdon Elementary and Emily Nunez from Gloucester High School, are recognized as Teacher of the Year for their respective levels.  Mrs. Keene has taught kindergarten at Abingdon Elementary since 1990.  Mrs. Nunez teaches English 9, 10, and 11 at Gloucester High School.

"It was both humbling and inspiring to hear the stories our teachers told about how they met the challenges of in-person, hybrid, and online delivery of their lessons this past year," noted Dr. Sharon L. M. Stone, Chair of the Board of Directors.  "The common thread was relationship-building, providing stability, and addressing issues of anxiety among the students in their classrooms and, in some cases, throughout the school. That they were also able to achieve their learning outcome goals was most impressive."

The teachers of the 2020-21 academic year for each of Gloucester’s eight schools (including two teachers from Gloucester High School) are:  Christine Keene, Abingdon Elementary; Hannah Kellogg, Achilles Elementary; Becky Johnson, Bethel Elementary; Colleen Roady, Botetourt Elementary; Alyssa Thomas, Petsworth Elementary; Amy O’Neil, Page Middle; Megan Harris, Peasley Middle; Emily Nunez and Crystal Thompson, Gloucester High.
