MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - A Rutherford County educator has been named Elementary School Teacher of the Year by Junior Achievement of Middle Tennessee.
Tammy Anselmo of Brown's Chapel Elementary School in Murfreesboro was honored with the distinction for the 2010-2011 school year.
"Tammy was selected for her length of service to JA, the number of students impacted through the JA program, and her overall commitment to the organization's mission to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in the global economy," said JA Director of Programs Andy Schenck.
The key components of Junior Achievement are focused on three key content areas: work readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy. Through a dedicated volunteer network, Junior Achievement has offered classroom-based programs.
Junior Achievement teachers have hosted volunteers in their classrooms who delivered the programs curriculum on financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entrepreneurship.
