Teacher of the Year – Kristin Robertson


I WAS ABSOLUTELY SHOCKED THAT DAY AS I COME
OUT OF THE COPY ROOM I SEE ADMINISTRATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE COUNTY LEVEL
AND IT WAS OVERWHELMING I JUST HAD NO IDEA IT WAS COMING SO IT WAS A VERY EXCITING DAY
I CRIED AND I SMILED IT WAS JUST ALL OF THE EMOTIONS MY NAME IS KRISTIN ROBERTSON AND
I TEACH AT SIGNAL MOUNTAIN MIDDLE HIGH SCHOOL I TEACH NINTH GRADE ENGLISH THIS IS MY SIXTH
YEAR AT SIGNAL MOUNTAIN MIDDLE HIGH SCHOOL WELL WHEN I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL MY VERY FAVORITE
TEACHER KIND OF JUST TAUGHT ME HOW TO LOVE LITERATURE HOW TO WRITE AND SHE INSPIRED ME
TO MAJOR IN ENGLISH IN COLLEGE AND SO AS I STARTED KIND OF FIGURING OUT YOU KNOW WHAT
I WANTED TO DO FOR A CAREER EDUCATION WAS CERTAINLY SOMETHING THAT KEPT POPPING UP THAT
I WANTED TO DO I JUST LOVE IT ITS SOMETHING THAT GIVES ME PURPOSE IN LIFE AND CERTAINLY
MAKES ME FEEL LIKE IM LIVING OUT MY PASSION THE MOMENTS THAT ARE MOST IMPACTFUL AS A TEACHER
ARE THOSE MOMENTS WHEN THE STUDENTS EXPRESS TO YOU HOW MUCH THEY HAVE LEARNED WHAT THE
COURSE HAS MEANT TO THEM THERE WAS ONE PARTICULAR GROUP OF STUDENTS AND EACH OF THEM SHARED
WHAT THE CLASS HAD MEANT TO THEM AND HOW MUCH THEY HAD LEARNED AND THAT THEY FELT AS THOUGH
THEY WERE INSPIRED BY MY INSTRUCTION BUT ALSO THE INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS THAT WE HAD
MADE I ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT THAT WAS A GROUP THAT REMINDED ME WHY I DO THIS AND IT IS CERTAINLY
TO TEACH READING AND WRITING AND THE COMMUNICATION SKILLS THEY NEED FOR THE FUTURE BUT IT IS
TO CHANGE LIVES AND ITS TO GIVE KIDS A PERSON IN THIS BUILDING THAT THEY CAN TURN TO WHEN
THEY NEED ANYTHING NOT JUST HELP WITH THEIR COURSE WORK THERE IS NOTHING I LOVE MORE THAN
TEACHING STUDENTS AND PREPARING LESSONS AND CURRICULUM THAT IS GOING TO EXCITE THEM AND
ENERGIZE THEM AND PREPARE THEM FOR THE SKILLS THEY NEED FOR THE FUTURE AND I JUST LOVE IT
SO MUCH
