November 10-- A business education teacher at Vidalia High School is the school system's Teacher of the Year.
L-R, Anna Helms – Vidalia High and System Teacher of the Year, Sarah Beck – J. R. Trippe Teacher of the Year, Megan Haygood – Sally D. Meadows Teacher of the Year, Sissy Anderson – J.D. Dickerson Teacher of the Year.
Anna Helms' selection was announced at Tuesday night's meeting of the Vidalia School Board.
"This award just means everything to me. I feel very blessed to do what I do every single day and represent all the other teachers who are working their butts off in the classroom trying to make a difference," she said.
This is not Anna's first rodeo when it comes to teacher of the year recognition. She also won it when she taught at J.R. Trippe Middle School in the 2012-13 school year.
To her, the most important part of her job is her students, "Just getting to know the kids and feeling like what they learn is important, but just trying to make them better citizens and better people is most important."
