Stilson teacher going for tops in state
Ashlee Mitchell one of 10 finalists for Teacher of the Year
Speech Therapist Bulloch County Teacher of the Year Ashlee Mitchell teaches phonological awareness and pre-literacy skills to Carrie Fritch's Kindergarten class at Stilson Elementary School Monday.
A five-minute walk through the colorfully-decorated halls of Stilson Elementary School alongside Ashlee Mitchell can remove any doubt of the authenticity in her principal's assertion. "Every student in our school knows who [Mrs. Mitchell] is," said Eileen Bayens, principal of Stilson Elementary. "She comes into contact with all of them at some time during the day, and takes every opportunity to find teachable moments with the students - whether at breakfast, lunch or in the halls."
