Mrs. Williams is UCEC's 2014-15 Teacher of the Year
Congratulations to Mrs. Lisa Williams, UCEC English teacher, for being selected as the 2014-15 UCEC Teacher of the Year. Mrs. Williams was selected for this honor by her fellow teachers and administrators. She has taught English at UCEC for three years and previous taught in Johnston County, NC for three years. Mrs. Williams graduated from NC State and likes to teach the English II material best because it exposes students to culturally different viewpoints. When asked for one of her favorite quotes, Mrs. Williams quoted Henry David Thoreau, " . . . if one advances confidently in the directions of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours . . ." She along with other school level winners will be honored at the annual Union County Public Schools Teacher of the Year Banquet at Rolling Hills Country Club on April 24, 2014. Mrs. Williams noted that her favorite part of winning the award will be having a front-door parking spot for the year! Once again, congratulations Mrs. Williams!
