Tia Johnson was nominated by her colleague, Michelle McMillan.
Ms. Johnson is an outstanding educator who works solely for the benefit of her students! She is an amazing role model for the staff and parents at Jackson Elementary School. These qualities are so prominent in her everyday life, that she was awarded Teacher of the Year for the 2017-2018 school year. She has always viewed her students as her own, regardless of whether they have moved on to other grades or if they are currently her student.
"Tia is the epitome of what a true teacher should be, inside and out," McMillan said. "She handles situations with tact and class, even when there are situations out of her control. She is a team player when working within the grade level and is always available to assist anyone on campus who is in need! Jackson Elementary is blessed to have such an exceptional teacher as a part of our staff!"
