This is the image for the news article titled #TeachersMatterAs a part of Spartanburg School District Three’s #TeachersMatter campaign, the Board of Trustees made personal home visits to each school’s Teacher of the Year to thank them for their service.  The Board members also placed signs in their yards announcing “A Spartanburg School District Three Teacher of the Year lives here.”

“The Board of Trustees were very excited and proud to make home visits and share a personal “Thank You” to our teachers.  We are D-3 Proud!” said Jody Gilmer, chairperson of the Board.

Lori Hefner, Teacher of the Year for Pacolet Elementary School stated, “Imagine hearing a knock on your door and opening it to the smiling faces of Don and Judy Kennedy!  The board members of Spartanburg School District Three purchased these signs for the Teachers of the Year!  How incredibly thoughtful!  I am so proud to be a part of District Three!”

Board member Ami Odom added, “We thought it would be great to recognize our Teachers of the Year in the same fashion as our schools honor their students.  Our teachers rise to the occasion and do their best to make sure our students have the best educational experience possible.  We are so very proud of our teachers!”
