ROANOKE — A local teacher or two may be doing some educational travel later this year.
Three Tri-Cities teachers, including Stephanie Miller from Sullivan County’s Colonial Heights Middle School, remain among finalists for the 2014 McGlothlin Awards for Teaching Excellence.
Two, including Miller and one from Bristol, Va., are in competition with one another in the middle school and high school category, while the other, from Washington County, Va., is the only Tri-Cities teacher in the elementary category.
Miller, a seventh-grade math teacher, as a finalist gets $1,000 but if she wins the grand prize, she plans a trip to Italy, especially Rome, and France.
“Probably Rome would be on my list of places to go,” Miller said, because of the connection to math and architecture.For an expanded version of this article, please see Sunday's print edition or our expanded electronic edition.
