CULLMAN, Ala. – Representatives from Tony Serra Nissan and The Cullman Tribune on Thursday visited schools across the county with Cullman County Board of Education (CCBOE) central office administrators to meet the system’s Principal and Teachers of the Month, and present them the keys to the vehicles they’ll be driving for the next month.  Each one also received a $100 gift card presented by the Nissan dealership.

Teachers are nominated by their schools’ administrators and chosen by a committee at the CCBOE central office.  Principal selections are made by the CCBOE administration.

Principal of the Month

Robin Netherton of Vinemont High School was named Principal of the Month.

CCBOE Superintendent Shane Barnette said of his selection: “Robin is always going above and beyond.  We’re proud to acknowledge him as our Principal of the Month.  The school has, not only in just instruction, but in sports and every area, has continued to excel under his leadership, and we’re really excited to celebrate with him.”

Secondary Teacher of the Month

Stephanie Hood, librarian at Good Hope Middle School, was named Secondary Teacher of the Month.  

She was nominated by Principal Alan Dunkling, who said of her: “She does a lot in our school, from a standpoint of not just being a librarian or a media specialist; she also helps us with our reading intervention, helps our kids that need a little extra help, also gets our teachers squared away on resources to use in the classroom, and actually comes into classrooms to teach, teaches out of the library.  And probably one of the biggest things that she did this year, that we’ve never done at Good Hope Middle School, is we put on a three-act play. And she took the drama club, and took us from not ever having one to having one and actually putting on a play, and it was great for our kids. I think it’s well-deserved and quite an honor for her.”

Elementary Teacher of the Month

West Point Elementary Kindergarten teacher Jessica Taylor was named the Elementary Teacher of the Month.  

Principal Angelia Yarbrough shared: “Jessica has stepped up to be a leader over the last few years for all of our teachers here.  She has extended her learning and carried it over to the classroom. She’s worked with our reading coach, helped us with our Walk to Read, to make sure that all the needs of the students are being met, as well as she’s always there for the faculty when they need her.”
