Central Elementary is very proud to announce our Teacher of the Year and Support Employee of the Year! The 2013-2014 Teacher of the Year is Mrs. Tami Fields and our Support Employee of the Year is Ms. Bonnie Forbes.
Mrs. Fields, our Teacher of the Year, began a STEM program this year at Central Elementary and teaches all our students Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics. This is her 29th year as an educator and 19th year at Central Elementary. When asked to describe Mrs. Fields, Dr. Spinks, principal of Central Elementary, said, “Mrs. Fields is an outstanding teacher who works tirelessly to provide students with the most engaging standards based lessons. She knows that every child can succeed and excel if given the opportunity. Mrs. Fields loves the students and pours her heart into her work. I love to see the children when they go into the STEM lab to work – they are thinking, having conversations about their thinking, and smiling. The students are excited to go to the STEM lab and they are engaged in the work Mrs. Fields designs.” Congratulations, Mrs. Fields!
Ms. Forbes, our Support Person of the Year, is a RBHS (Rehabilitative Behavioral Health Service) provider. She has been working in education for 18 years, and this is her 3rd year at Central Elementary.

She gives her heart, soul, laughter, and tears to see that our students have opportunities to grow and blossom. She can see, no matter the circumstance, what every child can do. We are very fortunate to have such a caring, creative innovator that understands children. Ms. Forbes is very deserving of the staff selected support employee of the year award.” Congratulations, Ms. Forbes!
