CCPS Innovative Teachers

November 2023


Bacon District Elementary

Principal: Mrs. Anne Snead


Bacon District Elementary School’s Innovative Teacher for the month of November is Sherry Scott. Sherry Scott is a Kindergarten teacher at Bacon District Elementary School. Mrs. Scott's classroom is a vibrant hub of student engagement and interactive learning. Throughout the day, she is immersed with student inquiries and discussions—an environment she actively nurtures. Her approach encourages a love for questioning and dialogue among her kindergartners.

One of Mrs. Scott's remarkable practices involves engaging her students deeply with literature. She captivates their imaginations by reading their chosen books, strategically pausing midway to prompt them to make predictions in their journals. Yes, you read that correctly—her kindergartners are confidently crafting complete sentences based on the narratives she shares! What sets Mrs. Scott apart is her unwavering dedication to each student. She conscientiously conferences with every child, ensuring personalized attention and guidance. 

Moreover, Mrs. Scott reinforces foundational concepts such as identifying "capital letters" at the beginning of sentences and the placement of "punctuation" at the end. While embracing the principles of Orton-Gillingham, her students courageously sound out words, fostering their spelling and phonetic skills. The emphasis is on communication, allowing them to express themselves freely and creatively. In this environment, the focus isn't solely on flawless spelling but on effective communication. Mrs. Scott's approach ensures that while words may not always be spelled conventionally, they're decipherable, fostering a sense of confidence and autonomy among her students. Her dedication to nurturing a culture of inquiry, expression, and literacy sets a strong foundation for her students' ongoing learning journey. Congratulations Mrs. Scott, November’s  Innovative Teacher! 


Central Middle School

Principal: Mrs. Jessica Pillow

Asst. Principal:  Mrs. Pamela Archer


Congratulations to Mrs. Lipscomb!! Mrs. Lipscomb is being recognized for her hard work, dedication, and creative ways she helps to make the Science curriculum come to life for the students at CMS. Central Middle School Science teachers recently hosted a Science Expo for all students and their families. Mrs. Lipscomb worked extremely hard to ensure that all students had the supplies and time needed to complete projects and display boards for this event.  Students decided on experiments that met their interests and allowed the students to use their knowledge of the Scientific method to complete their projects. The students were very excited to showcase all of their hard work at the Expo. Mrs. Lipscomb truly made this event a huge success where the students saw Science come alive!!  



Eureka Elementary

Principal:  Mr. Brian Hamilton

Asst. Mrs. Ashley Overstreet


It is my pleasure to announce that the Eureka Innovative Teacher for October/November is Mrs. Kathleen Braun. As the new librarian at Eureka, Mrs. Braun is trying to find ways to make the library fun and educational while also helping to manage the students. With this in mind, Mrs. Braun has created sensory bins and STREAM bins as well as invested in some flexible seating.  Students now have sensory or STREAM bins at their tables. Students are able to work with and manipulate these items as they wait for their tables’ turn to check books in and out.  This change has the students really excited and keeps the students engaged and learning without them even knowing they are learning.  Please join me in thanking Mrs. Braun for her continued dedication to our school and students and in congratulating her on being recognized as the Innovative Teacher for October and November!



Phenix Elementary

Principal:  Mr. Danny Richardson


Mrs. Pugh, a veteran first-grade teacher at Phenix Elementary School, is a beacon of innovation in elementary education. Her classroom is a vibrant, dynamic space where traditional teaching methods meet cutting-edge techniques. Through the integration of technology, interactive learning games, and hands-on projects, she sparks curiosity and fosters a love for learning in her young students. Mrs. Pugh's ability to adapt her teaching style to accommodate diverse learning needs sets her apart. She goes beyond textbooks, creating an environment where creativity flourishes, and every child feels empowered to explore and discover. Her dedication to cultivating a foundation for lifelong learning makes her a deserving candidate for the Innovative Elementary Teacher Award.

FCC Affordable Connectivity Program 
Below is information about the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC’s) Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). This program provides support for households with their internet costs. You are likely eligible if your household’s income is below 200% of the Federal Poverty Line, or if you or someone you live with currently receives a government benefit like SNAP, Medicaid, SSI, WIC, Pell Grant, or Free and Reduced-Price Lunch.
To determine your eligibility select the link below:

The FCC’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) allows qualifying households to reduce their internet costs by up to $30/month ($75/month on Tribal lands). Getinternet.gov is a simple, easy-to-use website with details on how households can sign up for ACP and find participating providers in their area. Several companies additionally committed to offer ACP-eligible families at least one high-speed plan for $30/month or less, with no additional fees and no data caps. This means that if households apply their ACP benefit to one of these plans, they would have no out-of-pocket cost for internet.

Eligibility status questions should be directed to Ms. Christine Powell at 434-542-5151 or at [email protected].


This is a reminder that the wireless hot spots are set up at each school. The network is open twenty-four hours, seven days a week, and is intended for students and the community to use until further notice.
