Laney named Teacher of the Year
AMORY – Amory High School social studies teacher Masha Laney was honored with the Mississippi Department of Education’s District Teacher of the Year award on Thursday.
“Mrs. Laney is a very student-centered teacher who works hard. She is a true professional,” said AHS Principal David Poss.
Each year an administrative committee chooses one teacher out of the five schools in the district.
Laney, who received a master’s degree in history from Mississippi State University and has also achieved National Board certification, strives to make learning fun.
“I chose social studies because it is often one of those classes that students think of as boring. My goal is to make it enjoyable,” Laney said.
Laney stated that her biggest reward is in seeing former students succeed and that this award gives her a feeling of pride.
“It means a lot to be chosen by my colleagues and administrators. It makes me feel appreciated that all that I do is recognized,” Laney said.
Laney, who has been at AHS for the past 16 years, is now eligible for the MDE’s 2013 Teacher of the Year Award.
