Tallahassee, FL -- May 30, 2012 --
May marks the last time for the 2011 - 2012 school year that WCTV honors a teacher of the month. This month's winner is Lauren Sweatt, a sixth grade teacher at Wakulla Middle School.
Sweatt teaches math, science, and geography. She's been with the school for the past nine years. She said she was surprised to learn she was nominated and says teaching is a very rewarding profession.
"Teaching is a very rewarding career, and every day you come home exhausted, but you know, at the end of the day, you've made a difference. And that's the most important thing," said Sweatt.
Michael Barwick, the principal at the school, said this is the first time a teacher there has received the WCTV honor. He said he is very proud of all of his staff for the great work they do with their students.
