Teacher of the Year

    Teaching our kids has been under the microscope for the past two years because of the federal Race to The Top Program.  This year is the first ever from the Smyrna School District.  Fifth grade teacher Amber Augustus is teaching her students to be problem solvers, by using real-life lessons inside the classroom.
