Congratulations to WA-ASM Teacher of the Year, Ms. Lucy LaRoche!

We are proud to announce Ms. Lucy LaRoche as the West Ashley Advanced Studies Magnet Teacher of the Year for 2017- 2018! Ms. LaRoche has been teaching for 11 years and is currently a Social Studies teacher for 6th and 8th grade. Here are a few things her colleagues had to say about Ms. LaRoche as a teacher:


"Ms. LaRoche ... never settles for the status quo ... she adjusts her curriculum based on the specific needs of her students, creating an individualized learning environment that never ceases to be both engaging and rigorous."

"Lucy Laroche ... is always going above and beyond for her students, as well as the magnet program. She is very involved ... with teaching, leadership, and PBIS but somehow still manages to take time to help coworkers with anything they need."

In addition to her amazing work in the classroom, Lucy is the social studies department chair and coordinator of our school's magnet program. She has been instrumental in helping out with PBIS implementation, iPad integration, and mentoring new teachers in our school building. If you came to our school over the summer, you probably saw Ms. LaRoche helping out in the front office, giving school tours to prospective students, and working on preparing iPad carts for the upcoming year.


If you see Ms. LaRoche, congratulate her on her awesome achievement!
