Scott County Schools named its outstanding teachers and employees throughout the district at its recent Employee Awards Program.

Eastern Elementary kindergarten teacher Christy Hall was named the school’s Teacher of the Year and said she was humbled to receive the award.

“As a teacher, I do not like to be in the spotlight, but the fact that someone else appreciates what I do reminds me of the importance of encouraging others. I work with an excellent group of teachers and administrator, and I am grateful for such a supportive team,” said Hall, who has taught at Eastern for four years. “My students make my job special...Their love for learning motivates me to always bring my best.”

Special needs interventionist assistant Randy Bloomfield was named the Employee of the Year at Eastern.

“It has proven to be a greatly rewarding job that has led me to get to work with some amazing, bright students. What makes working at Eastern so special is the family atmosphere and the relationships I’ve been able to form with faculty and students,” he said. “To receive this award definitely came as a shock. I was honored, nervous, and humbled all bundled in one emotion if that’s possible. It makes me feel proud to be part of such a wonderful compassionate school and reminds me that I was placed at Eastern Elementary for a greater purpose.”
