Julie Durham, a third grade teacher at Wohlwend Elementary, has been chosen as the Mehlville School District Teacher of the Year for 2016-2017. The honor was presented on Thursday, May 4th, during the District’s annual Recognition Night celebration.
Durham was selected from a group of 19 teachers who were honored as Teachers of the Year from each school in the District. Durham was praised by colleagues for her teaching skills and her leadership qualities. “We had 19 terrific candidates for this honor, and each one would have been a worthy choice,” said Assistant Superintendent Dr. Jeff Bresler. “Julie was selected because she does so many things so well. She’s the kind of educator who helps set a standard of excellence in the District.”
Julie Durham will now become a candidate in the selection of the Missouri Teacher of the Year.
