Crestline Elementary's Amy Anderson, Mountain Brook School System's Elementary Teacher of the Year, is in the final 16 for this year's Alabama Teacher of the Year award. The National Teacher of the Year  Program continues as the oldest, most prestigious national honors program focusing public attention on excellence in teaching. The National Teacher of the Year is chosen from among the State Teachers of the Year.  

Amy Anderson attended Troy University and graduated in 2000 with a B.S. in Elementary Education and in 2006 received her M.S. in Instructional Technology. Amy taught 5 years in Mobile County, 8 years in Auburn City, and this is her 3rd year at Crestline. This summer, she obtained additional certification in S.T.E.A.M. Education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics). In addition to teaching 4th grade science, she will be working with teachers school-wide to implement more of this integrated instruction as part of a district Institute for Innovation Grant she was awarded.        
 
In a nominating letter, Crestline principal Laurie King wrote,"The term 'master teacher' is rare. Amy Anderson is deserving of that title. She has a rare combination of incredible drive, superior intellect, and warm personality that make her unique to our profession. In my 33-year career, there are few educators I have met who more deserve the honor of serving as Alabama's Teacher of the Year. Amy is definitely one of those teachers."
