Conway Public Schools has named Kindergarten Teacher Randi House as its District Teacher of the Year for 2018.
House's classroom was packed with parents and grandparents for their end-of-the-year Awards Ceremony, where she was giving out awards to her students, when Theodore Jones Principal Tammy Woosley announced there was a surprise award presentation.
Superintendent Dr. Greg Murry then came into the awards ceremony with balloons and cookies for House and her students. The crowd applauded for their teacher, whom they say is one of a kind.
"Randi is a phenomenal teacher," says Woosley. "She has a way of being a huge advocate for students and putting her own unique, creative spin on the learning opportunities she provides to her students."
House has taught at Theodore Jones for the last 6 years, but began her teaching career in 2004.
She taught preschool in the East Poinsett County School District, then first grade in the Nettleton School District prior to coming to Conway.
Before being chosen as District Teacher of the Year, she was chosen to represent Theodore Jones as their school's Teacher of the Year.
