Earlier in the year the Regional Professional Development Center approached New Madrid County R-1 and Matthews Elementary with an application to nominate Mrs. Christie Kenedy for Regional Teacher of the Year. The application was submitted and Mrs. Kenedy and Mrs. Hanlin then attended the State Teacher of the Year clinic in Jefferson City. The selection process, along with the application, included writing an essay for consideration. On Thursday, June 28th, at a gathering of nominees in the Southeast Region, Mrs. Kenedy, was among two teachers that were awarded Regional Teacher of the Year for the Southeast Region. Now she is an eligible nominee for the State Teacher of the Year award, which will be announced in August.
Congratulations Mrs. Kenedy for your recognition as one of the RPDC’s Southeast Regional Teacher of the Year for 2018!!
