Several of our Top Teachers had fans share the exciting news on social media; from Facebook, here are a few posts:
“This guy is so modest, I know he wouldn’t post this, so let me do it for him… Congratulations to one of our teachers at Amherst Middle School—Matt Giles! He just received the top teacher award from Lynchburg Living magazine. Not only that, he was ranked number two among all of the teachers in the area! Thank you for sacrificing so much and for putting in all the extra time and effort serving the students of Amherst County!

We couldn’t be more proud of you, sir!” —shared with a video from the reception by Derrick Brown
