Carter named 2022 Teacher of the Year

Published on Wednesday, May 5, 2021

Amy Carter, an English teacher at Chapin High School in School District Five of Lexington and Richland Counties, is the 2022 South Carolina Teacher of the Year. 

State Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman announced Carter's selection Wednesday night at the annual South Carolina Teacher of the Year Gala.

"Amy's leadership in and outside her classroom, and dedication to her students have uniquely qualified her for this prestigious honor," said Spearman. "I look forward to seeing her represent South Carolina's over 55,000 teachers as she advocates for the profession over the next year."

In her 21st year of teaching English to high school students, Carter has sought to combine language and writing of authors and students with the powerful collaboration tools that technology offers. Carter's teaching philosophy comes from Marianne Williamson's urging to, "Let your light shine so that others may be granted permission to do the same." 

Carter will receive $25,000 and a new BMW for one year, as part of the awards for Teacher of the Year.
 
The South Carolina Teacher of the Year serves for one school year as a roving ambassador providing mentoring, attending speaking engagements, working with teacher cadets and teaching fellows, leading the State Teacher Forum, and serving as the state spokesperson for over 55,000 educators.
