CHS intervention specialist Theresa Replogle is district's 2021 Teacher of the Year
Centerville City Schools recognized Centerville High School intervention specialist Theresa Replogle as the 2021 Teacher of the Year during last night’s Board of Education meeting.
"I really value people, especially students," said Replogle, who has been teaching for 26 years, with 21 of those in Centerville. "I respect students, I am kind to them, and as a teacher, I help my students learn and grow and let them know their voice matters, they have value, and they can be successful and meet challenges."
According to John Carroll, coordinating principal at CHS, few teachers rival Replogle's content knowledge, interpersonal skills and dedication to children.
"Theresa's most outstanding characteristic is her concern for the success of all students,” Carroll said. “She is the most caring, thoughtful and purposeful professional that I have ever met. She works tirelessly to diagnose the specific needs of each student, then works diligently to provide tailored instruction to help each student succeed."
Replogle will represent Centerville City Schools as the district’s finalist for the Ohio Teacher of the Year competition, where her credentials will be reviewed by a state selection panel this spring that will choose one individual to be honored as Ohio’s 2021 Teacher of the Year.
