Osyka Elementary has had some wonderful, hard-working teachers this past first semester. Even though there were many fabulous teachers, each month only one teacher was chosen to be teacher of the month. September’s Teacher of the Month was Mrs. Ann Wilson. She was nominated for the title due to her hard work at making the school grounds look beautiful with flowerbeds. The Teacher of the Month for October was Coach Harris. “Coach” does a wonderful job assisting all teachers by checking in on them every morning and making sure they do not need anything. Osyka Elementary also had Mr. Dalton Williams chosen to be the Principal of the Month for October. Mr. Williams is involved in his school, and Osyka Elementary has the cheeriest, welcoming environment an elementary could have. The teacher nominated for November was Mrs. Katie Woodard. Mrs. Katie assists teachers with technological issues such as computers or Smartboards not working correctly. December’s Teacher of the Month was Mrs. Miranda Wilson. Mrs. Wilson was nominated due to her helping teachers with computer problems. Along with computer issues, she also offers knowledge of programs and strategies to assist with teaching and learning. We congratulate all teachers and our principal for all of their hard work and dedication to Osyka Elementary!
