Jefferson County Schools officially announced Gloria Norton as their 2011-2012 District Teacher of the Year.
Superintendent Bill Brumfield and other school board officials recognized Norton as District Teacher of the Year at a ceremony on Monday afternoon. She has worked at the Jefferson County Middle/High School for 38 years and she says her passion for working with children is her motivation in the school system.
Norton says, "It's my passion so I figure if I could make a difference in one student's life in a year then it's all worth it."
Norton will now go on and compete in the Regional Teacher of the Year in Orlando.
