Wendy Turner, a second grade teacher at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School in Brandywine, has been named Delaware’s 2017 Teacher of the Year.
She stood on the stage for an annual banquet with 19 other top Delaware teachers at Dover Downs.
The Wilmington News Journal reports that she told the gathering that she has been allowed to follow her passion of teaching – a challenge, she added, that she has grown to love.
She said that she was concerned about where the country is headed in these economically troubled time.
