Fairview's Teacher of the Year!
Mrs. Herlihy is a first grade teacher at Fairview Elementary. This year will be her sixteenth year as a classroom teacher. She began her teaching career in Houston , Texas. She moved to North Carolina two years ago and started teaching at Fairview. At Fairview, she taught one year in fifth grade and then moved to first grade.
The change in grade levels was toughest on her knees, but she is thilled to have the opportunity to work with beginning readers.
When students asked her how it felt to be teacher of the year, she replied, "Wonderful! I am very pleased and proud to be recognized as teacher of the year. I feel very fortunate to have been so welcomed and accepted here at Fairview."
