RQES Teacher Finalist for Alabama’s Teacher of the Year

The Alabama State Department of Education has narrowed down the list of potential Teacher of the Year candidates to 16, and one of Tuscaloosa’s finest is among them.

Mikki Powell, a fifth grade teacher at Rock Quarry Elementary School in Tuscaloosa, was named as one of the finalists.


“The educators nominated for this prestigious award nurture the character, intellect, and talent of Alabama’s students, and are committed to helping their students achieve success in the classroom and beyond,” said Sherrill Parris, Senior Deputy State Superintendent of Education. “They exemplify teaching at its best, and we are proud to have them teaching in our state.”

The pool of finalists will be narrowed down to four – and the 2016-2017 Teacher of the Year will be announced at a ceremony on May 11 in Montgomery.
