Teachers of the Year: W.A. Wright's Danette Baskin
Tuesday, February 18, 2014

We continue our series on the Teachers of the Year this week with W.A. Wright’s Danette Baskin. 

Baskin has been at W.A. Wright all 15 years of teaching. She is currently teaching second grade, but alternates between first and second with students so they don’t feel like they have to start over going into their second grade year. 

“I love seeing that light bulb go off,” said Baskin. 

She said that they are still babies and are going to love you, but they are starting to gain their independance. 

“It was such an honor to be selected by my peers,” said Baskin of the Teacher of the Year win. She said she was brought to tears. 

She said she loves the family atmosphere at W.A. Wright and loves getting to work with all the great teachers there. 

Baskin will be up for Wilson County Teacher of the Year, Friday, April 11. The banquet will be held at Cumberland University, and is sponsored by Wilson County Motors and Cedar Stone Bank.

Teachers of the Year: Rutland's Jessica Davis
Tuesday, February 11, 2014

This week, we highlight another Teacher of the Year, Rutland Elementary’s Jessica Davis. 

“I’m honored…speechless,” said Davis about the honor. 

Davis has been a third grade teacher at Rutland for seven years, but she still considers herself a new teacher. She said that is why it surprised her that she won the Teacher of the Year. 

Davis said she loves teaching third grade because they are eager to learn. 

“They have a love of learning,” said Davis. 

Davis said third graders are starting to formulate their own opinions and becoming more independent. 

Davis will be up for Wilson County Teacher of the Year April 11. The event will be held at Cumberland University and is sponsored by Cedar Stone Bank and Wilson County Motors. Davis said she can stand up in front of kids all day long and teach, but the banquet and being honored will be a different story. 

“It makes me very nervous,” she said.
