Walton County Teacher of the Year, Joan Kennett, has been collaborating with teachers throughout the district as part of a special program initiated by Superintendent Hughes that allows the TOY to serve as a resource person, working directly with colleagues to inspire innovative instruction, and improve student engagement.

Each week she visits different schools, sharing, collaborating, and participating in professional learning communities (PLC's). She will share pictures and descriptions of the experiences she encounters along her journey as Walton County TOY.

Ms. Kennett has spent some time recently at Walton Middle School with teachers Pam Rushing, Jackie Clemmons and Saundra Thorson, brainstorming and promoting science education.
