Stokes Early College High School’s Sayrd Price has been named the Stokes County Teacher of the Year.
Price was surprised by the announcement during the school’s award ceremony last Thursday.
“Mr. Price’s instructional activities create excitement, engagement, and personal connects to learning and academic standards,” said Stokes Early College Principal Misti Holloway. “His classroom environment is fun and inviting with stability balls in place of chairs, two classroom pets that are used in teachable moments, and activities that meet the learning needs of visual, auditory and kinesthetic learners. He is a diligent, passionate instructor, and he is a motivated, active leader. I predict he will achieve boundless success in his continued academic and career pursuits. Our students are fortunate to experience his knowledge and charisma in the classroom , and his colleagues, including me, are lucky to witness the energy and knowledge he brings to instruction.”
