Unsung Educator of the Week
September 13, 2019 - Caroline Stalvey, Wando High School
August 30, 2019 - North Charleston Community
Three of CCSD's schools were used as shelters for those who needed a place to wait out Hurricane Dorian.
The volunteers at Military Magnet Academy - MMA, R.B. Stall High School, and Jerry Zucker Middle School included both CCSD and non-CCSD personnel.
Individuals who put helping their community above helping themselves! Some of these groups included the American Red Cross of South Carolina, North Charleston Police Department and CCSD Nutrition Services.
Hurricane Dorian was the first time Jerry Zucker MS served as a storm shelter. Principal Perlmutter's team rose to the occasion and welcomed the challenge with enthusiasm and determination.
We want to thank all these individuals for their service to our community in not only North Charleston, but everywhere else in the Lowcountry!

Lori Holbrook is the science lab teacher at Mitchell Elementary.
She has designed lessons for all grade levels that incorporate engineering and design as well as the scientific method. You can often find her dressed up like Einstein, pulling on a lab coat, or elbow-deep in slime. She oversees our touch tank and terrapin aquarium.
In addition, Lori has her license to drive buses and will volunteer to drive our students on field trips in order to save money. When she accompanies our students on outdoor field trips she doubles as the environmental guide. Whether it's marine life or earth science, Lori has a wealth of knowledge. She also volunteers her time after-school and during the summer. Recently she drove a group of our students to a camp in North Carolina in order to safe them travel money. She is a dedicated and caring teacher and we are very fortunate she is at Mitchell.
