Tates Creek Instructor Named Outstanding Science Teacher of the Year

Fayette Public Schools 01 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (9/27/13)—Oct. 31 through Nov. 2 marks the Kentucky Science Teachers Association’s fall conference. At the conference, 9th and 10th grade science teacher Cathy Sammons will be awarded with a plaque for being the 2013 Outstanding Science Teacher of the Year.

“Since I have worked with KSTA before I know how hard it is to win the award,” said Sammons. “I am very excited.”

Sammons grew up in Lexington and earned a bachelor’s degree from Eastern Kentucky University and a master’s at Mississippi State. She is in her second year at Tates Creek High after 11 years in Barren County. She has also previously taught in Washington County and at Henry Clay High School.

“Teachers that I have worked with before nominated me, it is a huge honor,” said Sammons. “It was a tough award going against the top teachers across the state so it’s really amazing to win it.”
