Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to Mrs. Laurin Tew for being named Mary G Montgomery High School’s Teacher of the Year for the 2017 – 2018 school year. Mrs. Tew has taught special education at MGM for the past four years. Prior to MGM, Mrs. Tew taught at Satsuma High School and served as MCPSS Language! trainer and coach as well as the Adolescent Literacy Project coach where she trained teachers in over 22 schools in Mobile County. While she appreciated this opportunity, she returned to the classroom after three years to continue her life-long mission of, “Improving the lives of those who need so much.”

Mrs. Tew graduated with honors from the University of South Alabama with a B.A. in Organizational Communication and a minor in history. She later received her master’s degree in special education. Her excellence in the classroom led to several area colleges sending their upcoming teacher candidates to Mrs. Tew’s classroom to watch not only her instruction, but also her treatment and comradery with special education students. Mrs. Tew’s inspiration for her teaching methods comes from author Shelley Hitz who said, “Even broken crayons can still color.” Mrs. Tew’s preparation, training, and experience have equipped her with the tools necessary to assist her students in, “Learning to use their colors to complete this stage of their educational process.”
