Gloucester Educational Foundation announces Teacher of the Year
The Gloucester County Public Schools Educational Foundation is pleased to announce that Brian Teucke has been selected as the Division Teacher of the Year for Gloucester County Public Schools.
 
Mr. Teucke, teaches 8th grade social studies, joined the faculty of Page Middle School in 2015, having completed several years of military service and his Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Liberty University. He describes teaching as “the active ingredient in helping adolescents mature into healthy and responsible citizens.” Mr. Teucke, was also selected as the middle school Teacher of the Year for the division.
 
Two other finalists, Carrie Landry from Botetourt Elementary and Emily Carlson from Gloucester High School, are recognized as Teacher of the Year for their respective school levels. Ms. Landry teaches 3rd grade and remarks, “The greatest reward I have found in teaching is when students show both enjoyment and ownership in learning.” Ms. Carlson has taught World History at GHS since 2013 and expresses her philosophy in this way: “In the most basic sense teaching is about inspiring your students to want to learn.”
 
“Selecting our teachers for this recognition is one of the most pleasurable, but also difficult, activities we as a foundation engage in,” says Dr. Sharon Stone, chair of the foundation’s board of directors. “All nine candidates from the various schools have been chosen by their peers as examples of excellence. When it comes to the final decision, it is usually by the slimmest of margins.”
 
The teachers of the 2019-2020 academic year for each of Gloucester’s eight schools (including two teachers from Gloucester High School) are: Stacey Marsh, Abingdon Elementary; Carlee Hanchak, Achilles Elementary; Leonne Arsenovic, Bethel Elementary; Carrie Landry, Botetourt Elementary; Kimberly Robins, Petsworth Elementary; Brian Teucke, Page Middle; Aimee Layton, Peasley Middle; Emily Carlson and Sam Venable, Gloucester High.
