This year our Teacher of the Year is...........
Congratulations Ms. Reynolds!
"It is my honor to represent Abbotts Hill ES as Teacher of the Year for the 2017-2018 school year. This is my sixth year teaching the Mild Intellectual (MI) class for grades K-2. Being a special education teacher has been rewarding because I am making a difference in the lives of my students and their families. I decided to focus on being a special education teacher when my son was diagnosed with Autism at a young age. I wanted to find a way to help families with children with disabilities to obtain the best care and education as possible. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family. We like to travel, be outdoors and go to sporting events. "
The Professional Employee of the Year is............
Congratulations Mr. Ted!
"I was born in Wichita Falls, Texas and I have a large family of 6 brothers. A year after I was born we moved to Japan for 1 year. I have lived in North Carolina, South Carolina, and finally Georgia. My wife and I enjoy taking walks, playing tennis and traveling. I have worked at Abbotts Hill as a custodian since 2010. I am proud to be chosen as Abbotts Hill's Professional of the Year."
