Twenty-two teachers were honored during the Claiborne school board meeting for achieving Level 5 of the Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System (TVAAS). “The achievement was based on those teachers whose students had single or multi-year growth. This year, grades 5 through 12 were eligible, due to the suspension of testing during the 2015-16 school year. The elementary schools will be included in 2017-18,” said Angie Estes, elementary supervisor for the Claiborne school system.

The following teachers, ten of which were present during the meeting, were recognized. Christy Brooks, Jennifer Childs, Joseph Combs, Melissa Daniels, Whitney Davis, Aaron Ellison, Kris Foster, Patricia Fugate, Danielle Goins, Shelley Graves, Jeff Haynes, Amanda Headrick, Heather Herrell, Kala Lawson, Kathy Majors, Tabitha Miles, Waylon Myers, Chuck Painter, Sara Painter, Kenwettia Ramey, Sherry Smith and Chastidy Wilder.
