A teacher who followed a passion to help others and literally mentors hundreds of students every single day has been named the 2020-2021 Carrollton City Schools Teacher of the Year.
Carrollton High School Band Director Chris Carr received the top honor and was recognized along with three others – Natalie Wiggins, Tiffany Pullen, and Regina Hytower, Teachers of the Year at Carrollton Elementary, Carrollton Upper Elementary and Carrollton Junior High, respectively (pictured above in that order).
The announcement was made at the Nov. 10 Carrollton Board of Education monthly meeting, held in the Mabry Center for the Arts. Carr said he was “shocked” to be awarded the title.
“Every day that I’ve been here in Carrollton, God has proven to me that I made the right decision,” said Carr, who was named band director in 2014. “There were many, many signs then, and every day there are more and more. My wife and I are definitely Trojans and are very honored to serve our community, our students and to work amongst great leaders. Thank you so much for this honor.” MORE
