Teacher of the year

Congratulations to our Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Halie Black, First Grade Teacher!

Mrs. Black graduated from Georgia Southern University with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education. She started working at Ruskin Elementary in 2007 and made the move to Center in 2019. She taught 4th grade her first year, Kindergarten the next 2 years, and made her home in 1st where she has taught for 12 years. Her teaching philosophy is that every child can achieve greatness when he or she knows that he or she is loved. Her goal is to create a learning environment where each child embraces his or her exceptionality and knows that the world is a greater place just because he or she is in it.

She has been happily married to Michael Black for 15 years.They were blessed with two incredible children, Eli (12) and Emilie (10) who are proud graduates of Center Elementary and now attend Ware County Middle School.

We are very thankful to have such a devoted teacher and colleague working at Center Elementary School.

Congratulations once again to Mrs. Halie Black!
