Mooreville Middle School’s Tracy Lyle was named the Lee County School District’s Teacher of the Year during its school board meeting on Tuesday.
Lyle is in her second year at Mooreville Middle School, where she teaches seventh-grade language arts. She taught third grade at Moorville Elementary for three years and taught in the Tupelo Public School District for 16 years.
“It is quite an honor,” she said. “I’ve taught with many of the teachers up here, and I know how well qualified they all are.”
The district also honored the Teachers of the Year at each of its individual schools.
Each individual school’s winner received gift cards from Subway, Newks, McAllister’s, Harvey’s, Sweet Peppers and Heavenly Ham.
As the district’s Teacher of the Year winner, Lyle received flowers from Bishop’s Florwers and a fragrance basket from Belk.
She also received $1,000 from the Toyota Education Enhancement Endowment Fund. That money was an incentive since the district reached its attendance goal at the Bill Daggett presentation on the future of education in October.
Lyle is married to Greg Lyle and has two children, Logan, 13, and Mary Morgan, 9.
There will be more information about her in Wednesday’s Daily Journal.
