TOTY finalists

The Newton County Board of Education announced their three finalists for teacher of the year last week.

All three are excellent choices.

Laurie Carpenter is a second grade teacher at Fairview Theme School. Melanie Sheets a fourth grade teacher at Heard-Mixon Elementary School. Gail Bemis is a teacher at Livingston Elementary School. All three share the same leadership qualities, love what they do, empower their students and give 200 percent of themselves to their profession and their community.

We are proud of all three.
