The School District of Lee County is proud to announce the finalists for this year's Teacher of the Year. They are:
n Christopher Anderson, second grade teacher at Lehigh Elementary School;
n Terry Huge, a math teacher at Lehigh Senior High School;
n Jeff Kulie, a language arts teacher at Cypress Lake Center for the Arts;
n Jane Nordquist, a math teacher at Ida S. Baker High School;
n Neva Weisskopf, a seventh- and eighth-grade language arts and science teacher at Alva Middle School.
This year, 45 teachers were nominated representing all levels and subject areas. And as it is every year, narrowing down that list to the finalists was a very challenging and difficult process. All of the nominees truly exemplify what is best in the teaching profession, and we are very proud to have them teaching the students of Lee County.
The district's teacher of the year will be announced during a special visit to his/her school, which is scheduled for approximately Friday, Feb. 6. The winner will then be a nominee for the Florida Teacher of the Year.
