JEFFERSON COUNTY — Eight area Jefferson County Schools teachers have been honored as Second Mile Teachers by their peers.
The awards go to teachers at each Jefferson County school, recognizing them as the teacher who would be the most missed were he or she not to return the next school year.
The award at Chalkville Elementary School went to exceptional education teacher Christa Head. Clay Elementary School counselor Mandi Evans won for her school. Brittney Bullard, a sixth grade reading and language teacher, won at Clay-Chalkville Middle School and Rod Paris won at Clay-Chalkville High School.
The award at Kermit Johnson Elementary School went to fifth grade math teacher Connie Clayton. Pinson Elementary School science teacher Missy Presley won for her school. Rudd Middle School theater/study skills teacher Tamisha Parker won for her school. Erin DeArman, who earlier this year was named the Pinson Education Foundation Teacher of the Year for Pinson Valley High School, won the award for her school.
The awards have been given since 1990.
