Thomas Sumter educator named Master Teacher



Paige Crowe, an educator at a local South Carolina Independent School Association institution, was recognized as a Master Teacher during a November pinning ceremony at the Fall Teachers' Conference.

Crowe, who teaches at Thomas Sumter Academy, began the process to become a Master Teacher earlier this year, according to Dr. Spencer Jordan, SCISA executive director.

"The Master Teacher Program recognizes SCISA teachers who excel in the classroom and are willing to share their experiences with other teachers," Jordan said in a news release.

"SCISA commends its Master Teachers who inspire excellence in the classroom, among colleagues and, especially, among students."

SCISA schools are allowed to submit up to two candidates per year for consideration depending upon school enrollment.

The South Carolina Independent School Association is a non-profit, voluntary association of more than 120 independent schools serving more than 37,000 teachers and students.
