CHURCH HILL — Carters Valley Elementary School teacher Cyndi Snapp was recently named among 38 educators who have been selected for the 2018-19 class of the Tennessee Educator Fellowship by the State Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE).

The Tennessee Educator Fellowship is a yearlong program that helps teachers, school counselors and librarians learn about education policy and equips them to advocate for their students and their profession.

SCORE Executive Chairman and CEO Jamie Woodson said the educators chosen this year work in a variety of settings: traditional public schools, public magnet schools, public charter schools, public Montessori schools, an alternative academy within a public school and a school dedicated to serving children with multiple disabilities.

“The Tennessee Educator Fellowship has brought together dynamic and talented educators who are passionate advocates for education policies and practices that can improve student achievement,” Woodson said. “The fellows’ diverse perspectives and experiences are invaluable as they work both inside and outside the classroom and participate in state conversations on preparing all students for postsecondary and workforce success.”

CVES Principal Denise McKee said she and her staff are extremely proud of Snapp for being selected as the first Tennessee Educator Fellow for Hawkins County Schools.

“It isn’t a surprise that she was one of the 38 Fellows selected by SCORE,” McKee said. “Cyndi is an extremely talented and passionate educator. She is an advocate for her fellow teachers and her students. We are excited to see the positive impact that she and the other Fellows will have on Tennessee education. She is truly a difference maker.”
