Susan Peck honored as Outstanding Educator 2017
By Sheila Willis, science teacher, Adair County High School
The 2017 recipient of the Educator of the Year Award is a most deserving person.
She is well known for her 'puking pumpkin' experiments that wowed kids at our district's Hallow-Read programs, as well as her high energy chemistry lessons and her love of roller coasters that she rides with kids when on senior trip.
At Adair County High School, she sets high expectations for her students and she works tirelessly to see that all students have the opportunity to achieve success.
She is the embodiment of excellence in the classroom.
She knows her content and can deliver it like a college professor.
She is always willing to go the extra mile. She serves on our school's site base council and on our district's superintendent search committee.
She tutors weekly at ACHS (and NOT just in science), plus she is the sponsor of the STEM club. Her vehicle is the last to leave the teacher's parking lot at the end of each school day.
This lady is involved at her church and helps manage the family's campground on Lake Cumberland. She is a wife, a mom and a football booster. I don't know when she manages to sleep. But no matter what she does, she does it with class and dignity. I have the highest regard for her as a person and a educator and am blessed to call her my friend -- your 2017 Educator of the Year, Mrs. Susan Peck.
