Sally Meadows Elementary faculty selected Mrs. Debra Moncrief as our Teacher of the Year for 2011. Moncrief has taught 29 years in the Vidalia City School System. The majority of these years were spent teaching fourth grade. Moncrief moved to second grade this year and has made a favorable inpact among her peers.
Mrs. Moncrief shares her philosoply of teaching in these words: A love of learning is the ultimate gift a teacher can give her students. Learning is an ongoing process that should continuously be occurring. My goal for my students is to get them excited about learning. I try to help them understand how the knowledge they learn can be used in other areas of their life. I believe that when a teacher can connect what they are teaching to a real life experience , learning occurs.
Congratulations to Mrs. Moncrief!
