Congratulations to Jeannie Durham, Rock Hill Schools Teacher of the Year, who was named this morning as one of five finalists for the South Carolina Teacher of the Year during a surprise visit by State Superintendent Molly Spearman and Rock Hill Superintendent Kelly Pew. This is the second consecutive year that a Rawlinson Road teacher has been named as a state finalist and the sixth year in the past seven years that a district teacher has been named a finalist. (Two teachers became the State Teacher of the Year.)

Jeannie is an 8th grade science teacher who’s in her 15th year of teaching. She’s been at Rawlinson Road for the past eight years. In her nomination for the state, Principal Jean Dickson stated: “It takes a special person to teach middle-school-age students, and yet Jeannie does it with such grace, style and finesse that she makes it look easy. Her students leave her classroom not only having learned the science curriculum but also knowing that she genuinely cares for and loves them.”

The State Teacher of the Year will be announced at a banquet in Columbia on April 22.
