Teacher of the Year Semifinalists Named Including Dville Elementary Third Grade Teacher
South County had six teachers (of 53 nominated countywide) in the hunt for Teacher of the Year. That list got narrowed down to semi-finalists today, and just one teacher, Davidsonville Elementary’s Dianne Lloyd remains. In all, 15 semifinalists were selected.
Lloyd is a third grade teacher at Davidsonville Elementary School.
South County has been pretty fortunate in the Teacher of the Year race in recent years. In April, Anne Arundel County Public School’s Teacher of the Year was named. She is Jodie Hogan, a Spanish teacher at South River High School in Edgewater. Hogan was a finalist for state teacher of the year.
In 2011, Laura Groo, an English teacher from Southern Middle School earned the title.
