Oct. 27 art teacher Audra Shelite was named Augusta’s Teacher of the year and on Nov. 8 Shelite was recognized at the schools board meeting.

“I think it’s nice to know that hard work is appreciated and to know that I’m making an impact on students,” Shelite said. 

Shelite had some mixed feelings about her secondary teacher of the year recognition. 

“I was honored and a little bit surprised,” Sheltie said. “I know I have been nominated before.”

Shelite has been a teacher at Augusta High School for 14 years, and over the years she has realized how her students work best. 

“The kids in my class learn best by hands on,” Shelite said. 

Teachers interact with their students in a lot of different ways. 

“I try to have a positive mindset and a growth mindset and try to give lots of feedback,” Shelite said.
