2009 Rookie Teachers of the Year
On Tuesday, May 26, 2009, the Charleston RiverDogs hosted the annual Charleston County School District (CCSD) Rookie Teacher Celebration. The entertainment for the evening was provided by the Charlestowne Academy's steel drum band under the direction of induction teacher Benjamin Meyer. The event was a great success!
Each year, each CCSD school has the opportunity to select one Rookie Teacher of the Year winner. The district-wide Rookie Teachers of the Year are selected on the elementary, middle, and high school levels by a panel of veteran teachers.
This year, two of the winners, Ukecia Gilmore and Brittany Lillibridge, were invited to throw out the first pitch at the game.
CCSD's 2009 Rookie Teachers of the Year are the following:
fifth grade at Hursey Elementary
middle school level:
Winwood Farms & Liberty Hill Academy
high school level:
Algebra at Stall High
