Tabitha Rosproy brings honor to Winfield public schools.
As Kansas Teacher of the Year, she brings honor to public schools generally.
Rosproy teaches early childhood education in the program at Cumbernauld Village that brings seniors together with pre-kindergarten students.
Tabitha was chosen Teacher of the Year from among eight candidates. She and her competitors will travel the state to encourage students studying to be educators and to speak at professional development sessions.
Rosproy is the first Teacher of the Year from Winfield.
She is clever, hard-working and innovative. Her love of children and of teaching comes through in the comments she made to CT editor Judith Zaccaria for a story published Dec. 11.
Rosproy’s selection is wind in the sails of other Winfield teachers, as well as other teachers in Cowley County and the southcentral Kansas region.
Public school teachers have received more than their share of criticism from conservative lawmakers and unhappy parents. It is well past time for us to celebrate our teachers and their invaluable contributions to the preparation of our young people.
Tabitha Rosproy is one among many outstanding educators in our public schools. She will represent, and no doubt inspire, others with her upbeat, confident approach to teaching. As Teacher of the Year, Tabitha is in a wonderful position to bring honor to her profession statewide.
