The Alabama Teacher of the Year program seeks annually to honor and recognize excellence in the teaching profession by identifying outstanding Alabama teachers at local, district, and state levels. The T.R. Simmons faculty nominated Mrs. Stacy Flanary as our teacher of the year. Mrs. Flanary has long exhibited a love for her students. She served as a first grade teacher for 14 years, and currently serves as our media specialist. Mrs. Flanary works with our grade levels each week to prepare lessons that coordinate with the literacy skills that are being taught in the classroom. Outside of school, Mrs. Flanary loves to travel with her family and spend time with her fur babies. We are so proud to have Mrs. Flanary as our Teacher of the Year. She exemplifies what it means to be a Little Vike!
