Written by 

out teacherA Haywood County teacher, Janet Frazier, has been named the 2013 North Carolina Elementary Conservation Education Teacher of the Year.

 

The award recognizes those teachers who do a great job of teaching conservation. Frazier was nominated as Conservation Teacher of the Year last February by the Haywood Soil and Water Conservation District.

At the time she was a teacher for academically and intellectually gifted students at Canton and Bethel middle schools. Frazier used the Soil and Water Conservation District’s annual essay, PowerPoint, speech contests and Envirothon as learning opportunities for her students, eventually sponsoring five teams and accompanying those that qualified for the N.C. Envirothon to Burlington to compete against 48 other teams from across the state. This year Frazier is a media specialist at Central Elementary School in Waynesville.
