PITT COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) - WITN's Teacher of the Week for September 20 is Sarah Ruddock Hathaway of Creekside Elementary School in Pitt County. She teaches fourth grade ELA/Social Studies.
Ruddock has taught in three different counties over the last ten years. She graduated from UNC-Wilmington with a BA in elementary education and a minor in history.
“My favorite thing about teaching is how everyday is completely different from the day before, and every year is a new beginning in so many ways,” Ruddock says. “It touches my heart to be able to look at students throughout the years who I've taught who are doing amazing things with their lives, and in some small way, I helped shape who they are.”
Congratulations, Mrs. Ruddock!
Every week during the school year WITN will recognize a Teacher of the Week on WITN News at Sunrise. The winner receives a plaque and $100 Walmart gift card. To nominate your teacher, email TOTW@witn.com.
