In lieu of the regular Educator of Excellence celebration, which did not occur this year due to the cancellation of the annual Conference on Exceptional Children, the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction's Exceptional Children Division has created a new way for districts to recognize outstanding educators, related service personnel and special education support staff providing services to students with disabilities during this unprecedented time.
Exceptional Children Program Directors and Coordinators were invited to recognize Extraordinarily Exceptional Educators in their district throughout the 2020-2021 academic year. This is the second virtual recognition of this school year. There will be additional opportunities to recognize Extraordinarily Exceptional Educators during the winter and spring.
Warren County Schools is excited to announce that Ms. Kirby Alston of the Warren County School District was one of the teachers in North Carolina to be recognized as an outstanding teacher, related service personnel, and special education support staff serving students with disabilities in their district, charter school, residential school, or state-operated program for fall 2020. Please join the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction's Exceptional Children Division and the Warren County School District in congratulating Ms. Kirby Alston on her extraordinary dedication and excellence to students. Ms. Kirby Aslton was nominated by Ms. Shana Brown, Director of Exceptional Programs for Warren County Schools and Mrs. Blythelm DeSare, Compliance Specialist for Warren County Schools.
