@PLAY with our TOYS
What makes the best teachers in Aiken County their school's Teacher of the Year? Well, that's tough to say. But I will tell you that this year's group of school-teaching superstars seem to all have sunny dispositions, long to-do lists and a love of macaroni and cheese (mom's homemade, of course!).TODAY'S FEATURED TEACHER OF THE YEAR IS....
We hope you'll join us from now until mid-April on our website and Facebook page as we feature a different school's Teacher of the Year each day.
Learn what makes your favorite faculty laugh, what their best friend says about them, and what sometimes keeps them awake at night. Hear their witty remarks about what they like most about teaching and find out about their first jobs, their only regrets, and what they hope students learn from them.
THE SKY'S THE LIMIT FOR SKYLAR KERNAGHAN, SPELLING BEE STAR
After correctly spelling “premises,” “prolific,” “guffaw,” “albeit” and “ingratiate,” Leavelle McCampbell’s Skylar Kernaghan won the District Spelling Bee on February 2 when Sara Quarles, the only other competitor left standing in Round Five, finally misspelled a word and Skylar went on to spell both “benison” and “prescient” correctly.
Like the other eleven students who competed in the County Spelling Bee, the competition gave Skylar the opportunity to study and expand her vocabulary. And Skylar will continue studying as she prepares for the Regional Spelling Bee-the last competition for the eighth grade student before hopefully competing in the Scripps National Bee in Washington, D.C.
Congratulations to Skylar, the runner up Sara Quarles, and all the winners from school and area semi-final bees who participated in the county’s competition. The winning wordsmiths pictured below are #3: Stephen Havasy, North Augusta Middle; #4: Thomas Clayton, North Augusta Middle; #10: Cameron Fookes, New Ellenton Middle; #11: Connor Buchanan, Kennedy Middle; #9: Dana Smith, Greendale Elementary; #12: Kendall Leigh, Kennedy Middle; #5: Morgan Fields, Gloverville Elementary; #1: Skylar Kernaghan, Leavelle McCampbell Middle; #8: Sara Quarles, Aiken Middle; #7: Kaylee Westbrook, Aiken Middle; and #6: Seth Wright, LBC Middle.
