Teacher of the Year

2020-21 Spartanburg School District Two Teacher of the Year

Angela Monroe named Teacher of the Year Cooley Springs-Fingerville Elementary's Michelle Monroe named 2020-21 Spartanburg School District 2 Teacher of the Year!

"I was very excited and very terrified, because I don't like to be the center of attention." That is how Mrs. Monroe described her whirlwind morning that included the wonderful honor of being named the District's Teacher of the Year and receiving a $3000 gift to go with it!

"I am so appreciative of the opportunity."
Mrs. Monroe, a 4th grade teacher, was watching our virtual convocation being streamed live, when, suddenly, her cafeteria at CS-F appeared on screen. A surprise to her, but not to her colleagues.

"The competition was very tough," Monroe said of the TOY selection process. "I was glad to be nominated and selected. I was just going to be excited for whoever won."

Superintendent Lance Radford, accompanied by Trevin Thompson from Thompson Turner Construction, presented Mrs. Monroe with her check along with a special vase commemorating her accomplishment as her fellow CS-F Team clapped and cheered.

"I think it is great that in this time Thompson Turner Construction was able to do this," Monroe said. "It is so nice and generous of them."

Monroe said the special gift was well-time, as she and her husband just recently purchased a home.

"We're still unpacking boxes and have rooms that are empty. So this is a true blessing. It will go a long way to get our house where it needs to be."

While she is the Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Monroe was very quick to point out that in D2 there are many who deserve praise for their dedication to their students. #D2DifferenceMakers

"There are a lot of great teachers in District 2. I am glad to be their spokesperson and show them that we can all get through this together."
