Melton named the district teacher of the year

Natalie Melton of Edwards Elementary School was named the Chesterfield County School District Teacher of the Year in the annual ceremonies held May 9.
Melton, a 10-year veteran of the classroom, is also a native of Chesterfield County.
“Since I was a little girl, the only career I ever wanted was to become a teacher,” she says. “I have always wanted to help others in the ways my teachers inspired and encouraged me.”
After pursuing her degree and experiencing what life was like as the teacher inside the classroom, she was hooked, she explained.
“There are truly no words that can accurately describe watching a young child grow and transform right before your very eyes,” she says. “Knowing I get to play a role in that transformation is a privilege that I cherish every day.”

Area students attend 'Tiger Read'

Fifteen Chesterfield County School District Reading Recovery students traveled to Clemson University to participate in Tigers Read on May 3.
Tigers Read is a yearly event sponsored by Clemson’s Reading Recovery Training Center and Head Football Coach Dabo’s All In Team Foundation. Reading Recovery students were greeted at the entrance of the football practice facility by the Tiger band playing the fight song. Students shook hands with several of the football players, the Tiger, and Clifford. After being seated, the students were welcomed by the founding Dean of Clemson’s College of Education, George Peterson and Kathleen Swinney. The football players shared a read aloud and talked with the students about the importance of reading and doing your best in school. Each student was given a backpack filled with books for summer reading. After the presentation, students were treated to a lunch of hotdogs, chips and tiger pound cake outside on the lawn beside the baseball stadium.
The students were accompanied by CCSD Reading Recovery teachers and district administrators.
