North Brooks Elementary Announces Teacher of the Year

| April 25, 2016


MORVEN – North Brooks Elementary School (NBES) has named Lorrie Sears their Teacher of the Year.  Sears has been teaching in the Brooks County Schools System for 19 out of her 22 years as an Educator.  “I was inspired to become a teacher from loving my own school experience and the teachers who encouraged me as a child.  I loved reading and writing as a child and my elementary school teachers pushed me to do my best,” says Sears.

Sears also explains that as a teenager, she taught Sunday school to preschoolers who inspired her.  Sears believes that a teacher should have a positive rapport with students.  “The relationship is the foundation for great learning in the classroom.  Students who know their teacher cares for them will be much more willing to learn from that teacher,” says Sears.  According to Sears, a teacher should be very knowledgeable in their subject matter and with education consistently evolving and changing, it is important for educators to stay updated on new curriculum.  “A teacher should also be willing to meet students where they are, and help students become the best they can be,” she says.

Sears says she hopes that her students always remember to be true to who they are, to be the best possible person they can be, and to always care about those around them.

“I am so humbled and honored to be chosen Teacher of the Year by my peers.  My North Brooks Family has always been nothing but supportive and loving to me in the 15 years I have been a teacher here.  I hope to represent them well and make them proud.”

Sears further states that her goals are to continue teaching and be a lifelong learner herself.  “I’d love to possibly travel and visit schools in other parts of the words, then return and implement some of those ideas in my own classroom.”
