Carmel Elementary School Recognizes Teacher of the Year
Nathan Whitehurst has been selected by his peers as Carmel Elementary School’s Teacher of the Year. Each Cherokee County School District school chooses an honoree, who then is eligible for the Cherokee County Teacher of the Year honor. Whitehurst has been a Music Specialist at Carmel ES since 2008. “Mr. Whitehurst exemplifies excellence in teaching. This was noted by his peers selecting him as Carmel Elementary School’s Teacher of the Year, and I consider it a great honor to have announced his selection,” Principal Dr. Keith Bryant said. “He is definitely a superior teacher who strives to do his best for the students at Carmel!” In recognition of this honor, Bryant presented Whitehurst with a didgeridoo, an Australian musical instrument, which Whitehurst immediately demonstrated for his music class. “My goal as a music specialist is to inspire students not only in the arts, but in all aspects of life,” Whitehurst said.
