Mrs. Nash Named as First TACS Teacher of the Year
Mrs. Trudy Nash was announced on October 4, 2018, as the Teacher of the Year by the Tennessee Association of Christian Schools. This is the first time that the TACS has given this high honor. Mrs. Nash has been a teacher for thirty-seven years in Christian education, twelve of which have been at Temple Baptist Christian School, located in Manchester, TN. When asking the students what their favorite class is, the most common answer is English, because that is what she primarily teaches. Mrs. Nash also directs much of the Fine Arts that Temple students are able to participate in.
The Tennessee Association of Christian Schools has its main office in Chattanooga and oversees approximately fifty-three schools in the association. There are over 800 teachers in these schools from which Mrs. Nash was selected. She was nominated by the TBCS Administration and had to have several letters of recommendation which were then compared to nominations from other schools. The announcement was made at the TACS Teachers Convention. The theme of the conference was “Striving for Excellence,” which Mrs. Nash demonstrates every day in her classroom.
Praise the Lord for our dedicated teachers! This is a very special and well-deserved award for Mrs. Nash!
