Johnson City Schools is proud to announce our 2022-2023 District Level Teachers of the Year. These teachers were honored by their schools as building teachers of the year. The nominees were then reviewed by a district-wide committee that included former teachers of the year and administrators.

“We are very proud of our three teachers of the year and our building-level winners,” Johnson City Schools Superintendent Steve Barnett said. “These educators are great role models for students and colleagues as we all make sure to provide an excellent education for our students. We are proud and thankful for their service and dedication.”
The elementary school building level winners included Jessica Johnson (Cherokee), Sarah Glover (Fairmont), Amy Ford (Lake Ridge), Sandra Lilly (Mountain View), Kim Boone (North Side), Johnnie Sue Hawley (South Side), and Kellie Bowman (Towne Acres).
