Conway's District Teacher of the Year Randi House has been named a Semi-Finalist for Arkansas State Teacher of the Year.
House, along with three other teachers from around the state, was the first name revealed at a ceremony with the Governor and Arkansas Department of Education Commissioner this morning.
Describing her as a teacher who makes sure to meet her students' basic needs first, and always keeping clothing and food available in her classroom, a classroom where she takes them on virtual trips around the world, Arkansas' current teacher of the year recognized House for her commitment to community partnerships and hands-on learning.
House now moves on to the final round of the competition for Arkansas State Teacher of the Year, where a panel of state education leaders will visit her classroom and school for interviews and observations.
"We are ecstatic at Randi attaining this recognition," says Dr. Greg Murry, Superintendent of Conway Public Schools. "She does such a wonderful job of taking care of our youngest students and they love her for it. We look forward to her continuing this journey as she represents all of our teachers and the excellent work they do."
