Teacher of the Year Named

The Teacher of the Year for Meridian Public Schools was surprised by a visit from school superintendent Dr. Janet McLin Friday morning.

Magnolia Middle School teacher Robin Hall, who teaches 6th grade language arts, was presented with roses earlier on Friday.

"I love teaching and I love the children. If I can bring meaning to their learning, then I've accomplished my job as their teacher," said Hall. "I think I teach in a wonderful district at a wonderful school. It's a pleasure to come to work every day."

Hall said this was the biggest surprise of her life. Her students say she's nice and makes learning fun. Hall will represent the district in the state teacher of the year competition.
