Conway Schools has named its District Teacher of the Year for 2017.
Superintendent Dr. Greg Murry surprised Anita Cegers-Coleman, Keyboarding Teacher at Ruth Doyle Middle School, in her classroom this morning with balloons and cookies.
Cegers-Coleman is finishing up her 21st year of teaching, and has been teaching at Ruth Doyle Middle School for the last three years. She has also taught at Conway Junior High School and Bob Courtway Middle School.
Ruth Doyle Principal Debi Avra says Cegers-Coleman is an asset to their faculty in many ways.
""Mrs. CC" as she is affectionately known to both our students and staff, gives tirelessly to her students and our school," says Avra. "Whether it's working with students during lunchtime to catch them up in keyboarding or cheering them on from the sidelines at games, her presence and extra efforts are noted. She is not afraid to accept challenges and enthusiastically models a "we can do it" attitude! She is a blessing to our RDMS family."
Before being chosen as the District Teacher of the Year, Cegers-Coleman was chosen to represent Ruth Doyle Middle School as Teacher of the Year for their school.
