GREENE COUNTY, NC (WITN) - WITN's Teacher of the Week for October 16 is Stacy Cobb from Greene County Middle School.
Cobb lives in Farmville with her husband and two year old son, Brantley.
She began teaching seven years ago, six of which have been in Greene County, after graduating from ECU with her MAT in Elementary Education.
She says her favorite part of the job is, “being more than just a teacher, but a confidant, and seeing smiles when my students ‘get it.’ This is my third year teaching many of the same students and it is fulfilling to see them run and hug me and share exciting news with me and confide in me when needed.”
Cobb says her teaching style was inspired by a book she read in college, titled “A Child Called It.” In the book, school became the main character’s solace. She says that has inspired her to become a child’s solace and the person to make a difference in a child’s life.
The person who nominated Cobb says, “She is a great loving teacher that loves her work, but especially her kids. She is always willing to help and teach with love, dedication and patience. My daughter found a great example to follow and some one that encourages her to be best every day.”
Congratulations, Mrs. Cobb!
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 gift card for school supplies.
