Capital School District names teacher of year
Booker T. Washington Elementary teacher Julie Eaby was announced as the Capital School District Teacher of the Year at the June 17 board meeting.
Administrators honored her with flowers, signs and a car parade visit to her home the morning of June 18. She will next compete on the state level for Delaware Teacher of the Year.
Eaby was one of 12 candidates chosen as teacher of the year for each school building. The multi-step process included an application, interview and classroom observation. Sylvia Henderson, assistant superintendent for academic services, said the observations were all conducted virtually.
“The observations were absolutely amazing,” she said. “The relationships, the virtual lesson delivery and engagement were spot on and done with Senator pride.”
