Stacey Lewis -- 4th grade teacher
Charles Pinckney Elementary
"I do not think people realize how much Stacey does for so many others. She spends so much of her own time making sure everyone else is okay. Stacey, at the beginning of every year, meets with teachers to help them set up their gradebooks and Canvas. She has created lessons for the new science standards for the district and is meeting with her team to share lessons and ideas as well as to help them plan. Stacey has been mentoring a new teacher on our team. She is the leader of the Wellness Committee and helps with the House Committee. She leads a prayer group on Mondays after school. All the while, planning the most engaging math and science lessons for her students. She prepares study guides, hand movements, songs, and dances to help her students learn the content. She shares EVERYTHING with EVERYONE!" --colleague

"Ms. Tierney has gone above and beyond to grow the art program at West Ashley High School over the past few years she has been with us. In addition to teaching all of her students art and creativity, she also runs the Art Club after school where students help make banners for spirit weeks pep rallies, and more.
She is always bringing positive energy to the hallways and her students absolutely adore her. She often does not get the recognition she deserves for everything she does. We are so lucky to have Ms. Tierney!" --nominated by a colleague
