Atwood named ‘Teacher of the Year’

The Pulaski County School Board recognized the "Teacher of the Year" for the 2008-09 school year during their meeting Monday.
William "Bill" Atwood, a civics teacher at Pulaski Middle School, was selected as the Teacher of the Year. He has been an employee of the Pulaski County Public School system for 20 years.
Atwood is a graduate of Virginia Tech with a degree in social studies education, and is currently enrolled in the Educational Leadership program at Radford University.
Atwood was nominated for Teacher of the Month last September because of the "high academic and behavioral standard that he sets for his students," said Dr. Don Stowers, superintendent of schools, as he recognized Atwood during Monday’s board meeting.
Atwood is an active member of the PMS faculty, taking on additional responsibilities such as History Day, teacher roundtable representative, Knowledge Masters, team leader, and scheduling representative.
Stowers said one colleague wrote that Atwood "regularly receives the highest praise any educator can receive," which is that "his former students express excitement when they learn that their children will have the opportunity to have Mr. Atwood as their teacher."
As Teacher of the Year, Atwood received a $100 award for the purchase of instructional supplies.
He also received a "Crystal Apple Award" from Scott Arnett on behalf of Horace Mann, along with a gift card for breakfast at Mountain Lake, which Arnett presented to Atwood on behalf of the Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce.
