Halifax County Schools held its Educators Celebration earlier this month. 

The mission of the Educators Celebration is to honor, promote, and celebrate excellence in the teaching profession. 

“The program values the contributions of classroom teachers, who help Halifax County Schools scholars flourish,” said Superintendent Eric Cunningham. “Teacher quality and effectiveness are the most important school-based factors impacting student learning as well as principal guidance.”

Cunningham congratulated the honorees. “You represent the great educators of Halifax County Schools, who inspire, lead, and support our children every day. These individuals will help us lead forward as we drive accelerated achievement for all students to eliminate the achievement gap and low performing schools.”

Educators were selected by their schools for outstanding commitment to education, equity, and community leadership. 

They represent grade levels from elementary through high school and teach in a variety of subject areas including math, language arts, science, STEM, and social studies.
