The Randolph County School System’s 2018-19 Teacher of the Year is Angela Hunt.
“When I think about the rewards of teaching I think about the students who run to me in the morning to get a hug. I think about all the ‘light bulb’ moments when something new is learned. I love watching students explore and discover. It warms my heart when students want and feel comfortable sharing personal accomplishments or trials and when a child thanks me for accepting them for who they are. Watching children read and develop a love for reading brings me joy. It is gratifying that I get to build relationships and celebrate with children as they reach milestones … the ultimate reward is knowing that I have made an impact on the lives of students!”
