Ms. Charlotte Stevens: The 2021-2022 Teacher of the Year

On Friday, Sept. 3, Assistant Principal Angela Loftus announced to teachers in the cafeteria that the 2021-2022 Teacher of the Year would be Ms. Charlotte Stevens. Stevens has been teaching for 20 years and has spent 12 of those years teaching at North. 


When former biology student, senior Cynda Allen, was asked why she believed that Stevens was worthy of this honor, she replied, “I have always felt like she deserves some kind of award for her greatness because she is just such an amazing person and teacher.”


Allen explained how Stevens would always make sure her students understood assignments and what they were learning. One of Stevens current students, freshman Kinley Waltman, said that she thinks the booklets she creates for each unit are “very helpful to all students, ensuring that no one misses anything important.” 


Stevens has taught biology on-level and co-taught, honors biology, scientific research and environmental science. She is also active in many leadership opportunities relating to science. She is a sponsor for the student lead organization, Science Ambassadors, as they work to gain attraction from future Raiders and scientists with their Family Science Nights. These take place at elementary schools within the North cluster. If interested in this organization, visit Stevens in room 295, and she will give more information on how to join. 


Each candidate has worked very hard throughout their career to get to where they are today. Each of them goes above and beyond the normal expectations of teachers to obtain the recognition they have received.


Everyone who has been in Stevens class always has pleasant things to say about her and her teaching style. She engages students in her lessons and is always willing to help those who are struggling. She is a role model to many of her colleagues and students and represents Raider Nation as a whole.
