Bridges Prep’s Harrelson named ‘Favorite Teacher’

1 min read

Bridges Prep’s Maryanne Harrelson was selected last week as the “Favorite Teacher” by Winning Orthodontic Smiles of Beaufort and Bluffton.

Harrelson’s student, Jack Conley, nominated her for the award. She received a $100 gift card to Staples as her classroom of surprised students and Bridges administrators cheered, bringing the teacher to tears.

“Ms. Harrelson finds ways to make each day an exciting adventure of learning for her students,” said Dr. Sherri Herbst, interim Head of School at Bridges Prep. “This award is a nice way for her to know that her students appreciate all she does for them.”

Harrelson teaches fourth grade and has been at Bridges Prep Charter School only since December, when she took over an existing class.

Winning Orthodontic Smiles of Beaufort and Bluffton recognizes outstanding teachers nominated by students and visits schools across the area to celebrate teachers.
