She received a $1000 grant from The Foundation of Educational Excellence through the Dr. Wayne Carbiener Family in recognition for her great work. The award is presented annually to the Beaufort County School District’s Teacher of the Year in honor of former Beaufort County Board of Education member and Foundation for Educational
