District Teacher of the Year

Story image 1_0

Piedmont Public Schools is honored to announce that the District Teacher of the Year for 2016-2017 is Julie Ely, music teacher at Stone Ridge Elementary!  Mrs. Ely has been in education for 22 years, and she has been such an outstanding educator in Piedmont for the last eight years.  Mrs. Ely is instrumental in helping students develop their skills in music and in fostering creative expression, an appreciation of the arts, and a lifelong love for music.  Her classroom is always full of life as students play instruments, sing, dance, and learn various techniques and skills.  She develops her young musicians daily, and she designs performances for her students that are simply amazing to watch.  Piedmont is extremely proud of Julie Ely, and we wish her the best of luck as she competes in the statewide Teacher of the Year selection process!
