Angela Medlin is Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to Angela Medlin, who has been voted the 2011-2012 Teacher of the Year for Piedmont High School. Mrs. Medlin teaches Honors Film Production, E-Commerce I & II, and Computer Programming as a member of the Career & Technical Education Department.  According to Medlin, “I work with a wonderful staff who care about the well-being of each student, and I am honored to be the Teacher of the Year representative for Piedmont High School.”

Mrs. Medlin joined the staff 11 years ago after entering the teaching field as a lateral entry business teacher. She graduated from Wingate University with a degree in Business Administration-Accounting and was an accountant before a good friend encouraged her to enter the field of education. Her teaching career began at East Union Middle School before accepting a business education position at Piedmont. In addition to teaching business classes, Mrs. Medlin also obtained a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Gardner-Webb University, and she has served as an assistant principal at Piedmont for 3 ½ years. 
Mrs. Medlin is currently the lead teacher for Business & Information Technology in Union County Schools and also advises the Future Business Leaders of America, New Global Citizens Club, and New Century Scholars. Globalization is a passion of Mrs. Medlin’s as she works diligently with the New Global Citizens Club to increase awareness of global issues that face other cultures, especially the people of Uganda. She is the current co-chair of the Globalization Committee at Piedmont.
When asked about the most rewarding aspect of teaching, Mrs. Medlin stated, “When students that you taught come back and tell you how they are using the skills that you taught them in the classroom…that you actually helped them find their niche in the world.” Mrs. Medlin’s many contributions to students, staff, and to Union County Public Schools is clearly indicative of why she was selected as the 2011-2012 Teacher of the Year for Piedmont High School. Congratulations and good luck in the next round of the Teacher of the Year competition.
