Teacher of the year

Teacher of the year

Marsha Corbitt, first grade teacher at Oak Hill's JF Dulles Elementary in Green Township, is the 3C's Teacher of the Year.

She was honored along with five other educators at Northern Kentucky University Tuesday night.

The 3C awards are presented by the eight year "Conversations, Connections, Collaborations" partnership, which is led by the presidents of the University of Cincinnati, Xavier University and Northern Kentucky University along with the Cincinnatus Association.

"It is a true honor to receive the award particularly as I am at the end of my 30-year teaching career.  As I reflect on my years as an educator, it must be stated that I would not have achieved this honor without the many people who have helped to develop my skills as a teacher," Corbitt said.

Scott Toon principal at Dulles Elementary nominated Corbitt.

"One way you could look at it as a career award.  She's worked thirty, plus, years and done many outstanding things but when you look at the criteria of the award itself it looks for innovation, creativity, collaboration and to this day that's exactly what Mrs. Corbitt does," said Toon.
