Megan Floyd named substitute teacher of the year

LaFAYETTE — A Five Points substitute teacher was named Substitute of the Year within the Chambers County School District by Kelly Services Wednesday night at the district’s board meeting.

Megan Floyd, a substitute at Five Points Elementary was honored by Kelly Services, a partner with Chambers County to provide experienced substitute teachers to the district.

Evan Manderson of Kelly Services said Five Points nominated Floyd and said she goes above and beyond the typical duties of a substitute.

Manderson said Five Points Elementary told Kelly Services that Floyd is prompt, goes above and beyond when it comes to knowing students’ names, and she has brought in animals, such as a bunny or chicken eggs that are about to hatch so students can experience it.

Manderson said Floyd also donates to the school, volunteers in events and tags along on field trips without being paid.

“She is what you look for in somebody for your schools,” he said.

Chambers County Superintendent Kelli Hodge said substitute teachers are one of the jobs that keeps the school running smoothly. 

“The school district depends on substitutes every single day of the school year,” she said. “We could not manage without them.”

Hodge also said that Kelly Services is a great partner to have to fill its substitute teacher pool.

“Kelly Services does an outstanding job recruiting and training substitutes,” she said. “They are also good to provide extra incentives like the Substitute Teacher of the Year recognition.” 

Also at Wednesday’s meeting, Hodge said the next two meetings on school consolidation will be Wednesday and Thursday of next week.

The first meeting is slated for Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET at the Valley Sportsplex, and the Thursday meeting will be at 6 p.m. CT at the ALFA Building in LaFayette.

Hodge said representatives from HPM, a project management firm from Birmingham, will be in attendance, to present different options and questions will be addressed at the end.

“We are going to address the five big things that emerged from the last town hall,” Hodge said. “Those big things are — what is the school going to look like, how much is it going to cost, how are you going to pay for it, where are you going to put it, and most importantly, what time zone will it be in,” Hodge said.
