Teacher of the yearBy CALVIN PYNN  


At Tuesday night’s Pulaski County School Board meeting, Pulaski County Public Schools’ teacher and employee of the year were announced to cap off the 2013-2014 school year.

Angela Arnold, who teaches fourth grade at Snowville Elementary, was named Teacher of the Year by the school board. She was previously recognized as Teacher of the Month for December 2013, along with Critzer Elementary preschool teacher Jennifer Ratcliff.

“Teaching is something she was born to do,” Superintendent Thomas Brewster said as Arnold was presented with the award. “If you were to ask students what makes her extraordinary they would say it is because she makes learning fun.  She gets to know each student as an individual, their likes and dislikes, their challenges and their triumphs.”

According to the statement read by Brewster, Arnold is a truly gifted teacher, known for her organization, conscientiousness, and the fact that she puts her heart and soul into teaching. He also said she was awarded because of the excitement she has for the things she teaches, as well as the songs and sayings she comes up with to help her students remember her lessons.
