Mr. Tim Higgins- WHS Teacher of the Year!

WHS Teacher of the Year


Congratulations to Math teacher Mr. Tim Higgins on his selection as the 2018-2019 Weddington High School teacher of the year! Tim is a dedicated educator who brings energy and passion to every period of every school day. Tim exemplifies the attributes of positivity, professionalism, and student-centeredness.


Congratulations, as well, to Mrs. Andrea Cook and Mr. Michael Schnee who were finalists along with Mr. Higgins for the selection. The process started with colleague nominations for the recognition, and then a voting process narrowed the field to three finalists. The final selection for teacher of the year was made by a team of three UCPS staffers (a principal, an assistant principal, and a Central Services employee). The selection team indicated that the interview and observation process resulted in a very tight competition, but Tim came out on top.


Let’s all wish Mr. Higgins the best as he advances to the district-wide teacher of the year process.
