Last year, Tammy Jerkins was chosen Lake County Teacher of the Year and later selected as the 2018 Florida Teacher of the Year, representing more than 195,000 teachers across the state. This year, Tammy will be taking a sabbatical from teaching and will be serving as the Christa McAuliffe Ambassador for Education. While she will miss teaching at LHS, she is honored to serve in this new role. She will be touring the state to learn from other teachers as well as delivering motivational speeches and sharing instructional strategies. She hopes teachers, students, and other community friends will follow her journey at learnwithmeflorida.com or @2018fltoy.
