TETA 2023 Teacher of the Year

That's wonderful news! Jordan Dison, a 3rd-grade teacher at Woodland Elementary, has been recognized as the Tennessee Education Technology Association (TETA) Outstanding Teacher of the Year sponsored by Promethean. This prestigious award acknowledges teachers who effectively incorporate technology into their classrooms to enhance student learning.

Jordan Dison is the first teacher from Johnson City Schools to win this esteemed award. Her application stood out among the nominees, and TETA Executive Director Terry Sue Fanning was impressed by how thoughtfully she uses technology to impact her students' learning experience.

Terry Sue Fanning and her team traveled from Nashville to surprise Jordan Dison with the award during a staff meeting at Woodland Elementary on Monday, May 22. As part of the recognition, Dison will attend the TETA conference in November for free, where she will be honored again at an awards banquet.

Dison expressed her gratitude for the honor and acknowledged the support she received from Johnson City Schools, particularly mentioning Dr. David Timbs and Mrs. Tina Faust for their contributions to her growth as a leader and educator. Woodland Principal Dr. Karen Reach also received praise for her continuous support of Dison's use of technology in the classroom.

It's evident that Jordan Dison is a dedicated and talented educator, and her recognition as the TETA Outstanding Teacher of the Year is well-deserved. Congratulations to her for representing her school, district, and state with this remarkable achievement!
