Congratulations to Ann-Frances Brown Sumter High School’s 2018-2019 Teacher of the Year!

Ann-Frances Brown has taught English at Sumter High School for eight years. The most rewarding part of her career in education is knowing that she gets the chance to teach students how to learn. She finds that her most fulfilling moments always involve equipping students with the capacity to reflect and target areas for growth. They begin to establish a sense of self and an appreciation for the value in taking risks, asking questions, and working with others to solve problems. When they cross the stage on graduation day, she feels confident that they’ve been equipped with the knowledge they need to go out and achieve their goals. That sense of accomplishment inspires Ann-Frances to come back each year ready to engage and challenge future generations.
