MVBT is excited to announce November’s teacher of the month, Mrs. Rebecca, Smotherman, MVE second grade teacher Rebecca is a motivating, thoughtful, and meticulous educator. Mrs. Smotherman not only teaches her students academics, but she focuses life and coping skills. Her students are always up for a challenge because she has taught them that there is nothing too hard for them to accomplish. She always has a smile on her face and has a skill set that allows her to understand her students on a deeper level. We are thankful for Mrs. Smotherman! The teacher of the month was sponsored by The Angel Garden and Zeke’s Coffee House. Thank you for supporting the MVBT staff!

They attended multiple sessions presented by area teachers who discussed what “a day in the life” of a teacher looks like at different grade and content levels.
Early this morning, our bus barn was destroyed in a fire. Firefighters are still on the scene. We were able to move the buses and we will have school today. Buses should run at normal times.
In congruence with their Beginning Teaching Program, a group of second year educators spent an amazing day with Mike Rutherford, author of The Artisan Teacher: A Field Guide to Skillful Teaching. It was a great day of learning and collaboration.
Our awesome MVBT office staff met for lunch to celebrate the completion of a huge task they recently finalized. At the beginning of this school year, the office staff worked tirelessly to transition to a new student information system. Then, due to challenges beyond our district’s control, the office staff had to transition back to the previous system. Since the beginning of this school year, they have spent hours at their computers getting all of our student and teacher data perfected! Our office staff have conquered a task that is nothing short of miraculous! These ladies are greatly appreciated, highly respected, and absolutely the best!
