I am Carol Forrest. In May of 2019 I was named Teacher of the Year for Long Mill Elementary School. What an honor to represent such hard working, dedicated teachers! In June I was named the Franklin County Schools Teacher of the Year. I was so surprised and again honored to represent all of the teachers across the district who love and teach our Franklin County kids. Another BIG surprise came in December when I was named the North Carolina North Central Regional Teacher of the year. I am so proud to represent the teachers all around us.I hope to get to know many of them as I strive to make their voices heard this year. I want to share a little bit about the teachers that I do represent. I represent the teachers who… 

Love what they do,       

Love to learn with their learners,

Get better every year at what they do,

Know how to take an idea and make it work in their class,

Lead in their classroom (with their students, their families, their colleagues, their teams),

Like Mondays as well as Fridays,

Care about the whole child, 

Go to sleep and wake up thinking about their students (what will make them more successful),

Keep data for decision making,

Cherish memories made and tell the story,

See the growth, both big and small,

Recognize efforts being made by students,

Provide safety and belonging for their students,

Learn from their colleagues,

Listen to all those around them,

Love working with others to  provide equity for all students,

Work from bell to bell,

Inspire those around them,

Encourage others to grow,

Work with district or building teams to promote best practices and support teachers,

Share materials and resources,

Spend their own time and money on their students,

Share strategies that work,

Know how to work with a team, and

Feel they have found their destiny.

That is who I am and that is who I represent. So honored to do so!
