Woodson recognized as a Master Teacher
An educator at a South Carolina Independent School Association institution has been recognized as a Master Teacher during the pinning ceremony at the at the Fall Teachers’ Conference held earlier this month on the campus of Orangeburg Preparatory Schools.
Tara P. Woodson, who teaches at Thomas Hart Academy, Hartsville, began the process to become a Master Teacher earlier this year, according to SCISA Executive Director Larry Watt.
“The Master Teacher Program recognizes SCISA teachers who excel in the classroom and are willing to share their experiences with other teachers,” Watt said. “SCISA commends its Master Teachers who inspire excellence in the classroom, among colleagues and, especially, among students.”
SCISA schools are allowed to submit up to two candidates per year for consideration depending upon school enrollment. The South Carolina Independent School Association is a non-profit, voluntary association of over 120 independent schools serving more than 37,000 teachers and students.
Founded in 1965, the State of South Carolina incorporated SCISA as an exclusively educational organization with the responsibilities of establishing accreditation standards, coordinating academic and athletic competition and providing professional development for member organizations.
