The South Carolina Education Association honored Pocalla Springs Elementary School Technology/Curriculum Coach Krista Jennings as an outstanding educator in a presentation Wednesday at the school.
The SCEA honored Jennings as part of the National Education Association's 96th-annual American Education Week celebration, Nov. 13-17.
"Krista Jennings' title is technology/curriculum coach but she is so much more," Dr. Laura M. Brown, Pocalla Springs Elementary School principal, said. "Ms. Jennings is the 'face of Pocalla' for our live-streamed morning show. She is definitely a role model for everyone at Pocalla Springs."
Last week, the SCEA invited S.C. K-12 public education principals to nominate their choice for educators in their schools who go above and beyond the call of duty in providing the best in education for their students.
SCEA President Bernadette R. Hampton reviewed the nominated educators and selected the educators to be honored in different regions of the state during American Education Week presentations.
By honoring educators who have been identified as going above and beyond the call of duty, the SCEA is part of a nationwide effort to draw attention to American Education Week's theme, "Great Public Schools: A Basic Right and Our Responsibility."
