A glimpse into Duval Teacher of the Year Finalist Will Smith's classroom

4/11/2018

Great teaching and learning are happening every day in Duval County Public Schools, and we're excited to provide a glimpse into five of those classrooms. As a part of the EDDY Awards and Gala, we have a video journalist spend time with each of our five finalists for Duval County Teacher of the Year. The videos are played each year for the attendees at the EDDY Awards, and we are excited to share these videos this week with the Jacksonville community!

To get us started, here's a glimpse into 2018 Florida Blue Duval Teacher of the Year Finalist Will Smith's classroom.
