(SPRINGFIELD, Ky.) – Washington County Elementary School teacher Anne Margaret Taylor, Washington County Middle School teacher Kristen Bartley and Washington County High School teacher Dawn Curtsinger were each recognized at Campbellsville University’s Excellence in Teaching Awards Ceremony held on May 20.
Taylor has been with the Washington County School District since 1995. “I am honored and humbled to receive the 2017 CU Excellence in Teaching Award,” said Taylor. “I know this is an honor that any of my colleagues are worthy of as we all work together as a team and family at WCES. I am proud not only to say that I am an educator, but most importantly that I am an educator in a community that I love!”
Bartley has been with the WCSD since 2004. “Teaching is demanding yet such a blessing,” she says. “It was such an honor to be recognized for all we do. Sometimes we lose sight of why we work so hard daily, but it’s all about making a difference. Thank you to Washington County Schools for all of the opportunities you have given me. Thank you to Campbellsville University for my education and for this teaching honor!”
Curtsinger has been teaching in Washington County since 2012. “Winning the award goes to show you that hard work and dedication pay off,” she says. “Even when you don’t think people are noticing the work you are putting in, they are. It lets me know that I am making a difference in our students’ lives and that I can always grow in my capacity as a teacher.”
“We are very proud of these outstanding teachers,” says Dr. J. Robin Cochran, superintendent of Washington County Schools. “They work diligently to provide robust learning experiences that ‘command excellence’ daily. We are thankful for our Campbellsville University partnership and the recognition they provide to our teachers.”
