Tyler ISD announced the 2014 Teachers of the Year at the annual Teacher of the Year Banquet held this evening at Harvey Convention Center. The celebratory banquet was hosted by Cooperative Teachers Credit Union.
The District honored Campus Teachers of the Year before naming Beverly McRae as Elementary Teacher of the Year and Jennifer Sheffield as Secondary Teacher of the Year.
Ms. McRae is the reading intervention teacher for kindergarten through fifth grade at Owens Elementary School and believes that the greatest blessing of her teaching career has been the students who have given her abundant joy through their smiles, laughter, and fun.
"I am so proud of this honor because I have loved teaching my whole career. Actually, it isn't a career, it is my life calling," Ms. McRae said.
