Tallahassee, FL - Who says being a rookie means you're at the bottom of the totem pole? This rookie has been named top notch.
Kimberly Myrick is Gadsden County's "Rookie Teacher of the Year."
The superintendent surprised her with the announcement in class Wednesday afternoon.
Myrick teaches biology and physical science at West Gadsden High School. Her principal says the outstanding work Myrick's done in her year and a half there makes her more than deserving of the honor.
Myrick says, "It's a very privilege and honor that I got a chance to teach in Gadsden County. I have enjoyed every moment of it. I love the kids. I enjoy the teamwork, my leaders, my administrators. It's a privilege."
Myrick is now qualified for the statewide "Rookie Teacher of the Year" award, which will be announced in July.
