Sumter Today: Sumter’s top teacher for the school year is named


Sumter School District is starting off this school year with a new top teacher.
Each year, they announce the District Teacher of the Year at the Celebration of Excellence ceremony and staff rally.
While this year’s overall event was again virtual because of COVID, the superintendent and a few others surprised this year’s top teacher in his classroom with the news.
We were able to be on hand at Chestnut Oaks Middle School to see how it went.
