- Leslie Deitterick, Goochland Middle School
- Brett Derrico, Goochland High School
On May 10, 2016, our teachers of the year appeared before the School Board and our county teacher of the year was announced, Mr. Joe Beasley.
Since August 2012, Mr. Joe Beasley has been a teacher at Goochland Elementary School, after student teaching the previous year at Randolph Elementary School here in Goochland. Mr. Beasley believes that based on what teachers know about their students, “it is our job to do whatever it takes to incorporate their interests into our instruction.” This year, Mr. Beasley has adopted a SCRUM approach towards teamwork in his classroom and has been using Minecraft with students as part of his literature circles instruction.
Congratulations to Mr. Beasley on being chosen GCPS Teacher of the Year and to our other four fine teachers for being recognized by their peers at their schools.
