School of Education alumna Carolyn Doyle earned the first runner-up spot for this year’s Richmond Public Schools’ Teacher of the Year award. Doyle, who received her Master of Interdisciplinary Studies in 2008, has enjoyed a 29-year career as a teacher. She currently teaches mathematics at Ginter Park Elementary School, a Title I school on the city’s north side.
“I strongly believe that if students are given the tools needed for learning, they will achieve success,” Doyle said in a statement. “My role as the teacher is to provide students with the tools and strategies that are vital for academic and life success, which include passing the Standards of Learning Tests.”
“[Doyle’s] commitment and dedication to student achievement is displayed each time she has presented at the National Council for Teachers of Mathematics, the Virginia Council of Teachers of Mathematics, Richmond Public Schools District Professional Development and the Greater Richmond Council of Teachers of Mathematics,” Indira S. Williams, principal of Ginter Park Elementary School, said.
