Tallahassee, FL - The 2013-2014 winner of Leon County Schools' Glenn-Howell Educator of the Year is Brandon Clayton.

He was shocked to walk into his school's cafeteria Monday morning to see a room full of cheering students, the district superintendent and school administrators, and his family.

Clayton started at Bond Elementary School a year and a half ago as a third grade math teacher, but, now teachers fourth grade reading. He's been with the district for ten years.

He says, "This was so amazing. I'm just floored and floating on cloud nine right now. I'm not sure how to feel or what to say. I don't know if I want to keep smiling, laugh, cry, or what. This is an extreme honor."

The Glenn-Howell award recognizes educators for their minority leadership in education in Leon County Schools.
