Beaufort County Board of Education members and Beaufort County School District administrators made surprise visits Friday, May 6, to classrooms and work areas to announce the 2022-23 Teachers of the Year and Support Staff of the Year.
“This is an amazing opportunity to celebrate our best and brightest teacher and staff leaders,” Superintendent Frank Rodriguez said in a release. “They represent all district employees who consistently go above and beyond in supporting our students needs in innovative and creative ways.”
Teachers of the Year are selected by their peers according to criteria established by the schools, the South Carolina Department of Education and the district’s Teacher Forum. Teachers honored will be eligible for District Teacher of the Year honors next fall.
Support staff honorees are selected by school staff and can include social workers, school nurses, bookkeepers, office managers, teacher assistants, school secretaries and technology and data specialists. Staff honored will be eligible for District Support Staff Person of the Year.
