“We’re blessed with the opportunity to stand for something—for liberty and freedom and fairness.

Congratulations to Meghan Allen for being named the 2018-2019 Alternate Alabama Teacher of the Year and Alabama Elementary Teacher of the Year! Meghan is an exceptional education teacher at @minorcommunityschool who strives to prepare all students for bright futures in her self-contained classroom. “In my classroom, all students’ input is needed and valuable. We see each other for our abilities and not our disabilities. We work as a team. We build our skills to increase our independence.” One of Meghan’s goals is to be a champion for inclusion by being a voice for all students, regardless of their special needs. Congratulations Meghan!!!! #thankateacher #teacherappreciationweek
A good teacher inspires hope, ignites imagination, and instills the love of learning. This week is #teacherappreciationweek and we hope you will join us this week as we celebrate the amazing teachers in our district! Let's all #thankateacher!
