Board honors District Teachers of the Year

The Mountain Brook Board of Education honored Tracy Cole and Pam Pugh as the District Teachers of the Year.  Cole, 6th grade language arts teacher from Brookwood Forest Elementary was selected as the Elementary District Teacher of the Year, and Pugh, 9th grade English teacher at Mountain Brook Junior High was honored as the Secondary District Teacher of the Year.  Cole and Pugh will compete for the Alabama Teacher of the Year in the spring, 2019.  


Both are described as master teachers who create community in their classrooms, build relationships with students, and focus on developing confidence in students' abilities to think deeply about how literature relates to life, and to express their thoughts and ideas eloquently and articulately.
