Region 6 Middle School Team of the Year
Angela Monell, Brittany DeLucia, and Shannon Mathis were awarded the 2011-2012 Region 6 Middle School Team of the Year by the North Carolina Middle School Association at their annual conference in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Receiving this award is no easy task. The nominated team must demonstrate outstanding performance in building a team identity, curriculum knowledge and integration, student achievement, using a variety of instructional strategies, student recognition, service projects, and special team activities.
When asked why they are so successful, the team responded, "As a team we feel like it is easy, because we genuinely care about our students as well as each other. We share similar philosophies in academic performance, and we hold students accountable."
As I sat and talked to the team, it was evident that not only are they consummate professionals who are strong in their convictions about education, but they are willing to challenge the status quo as well as each other in the development of their craft. We are certainly lucky to have them at Porter Ridge Middle, and we look forward to all of the wonderful things they are sure to accomplish.
