Our teachers are amazing, which is why we share the story of a school’s Teacher of the Year every week ... please help us celebrate 2021 Teasley Middle School Teacher of the Year Beth DuLong!

Teasley Middle School 2021 Teacher of the Year Beth DuLong loves reading.  She loves helping students improve their ability to read and increase their enthusiasm for reading even more.

“When we can’t read, the opportunities around us become limited as does our vision of what could potentially be,” said the 21-year educator, who teaches seventh-grade literature and composition.  “Being well read contributes to being successful academically, socially and personally.  It is one of the greatest gifts.”

Ms. DuLong not only dedicates herself to literacy during the classes she teaches, but also after school through her sponsorship of the school’s TOME Student Literary Society, which last year earned Superior Chapter of the Year at the statewide competition, and reading bowl team, which recently placed third at the CCSD Middle School Reading Bowl.

Students, parents and colleagues praise Ms. DuLong for building positive relationships with students that encourage both their academic success and them as individuals overall.  “Mrs. DuLong was a lifesaver,” a former student shared.  “She made me find my love for reading again and was able to help me find an escape from the chaos of the world.  She taught me to search for the truth in what I was reading through finding credible sources, which has helped me more as an adult to tackle my understanding of the world around me.  She made me feel comfortable being who I am.”

In her own words: “I am passionate about helping students find their way, especially in the often-turbulent middle school years.  I love to expose them to literature and learning opportunities that help them see themselves, understand the world around them, and know they are loved and they can be successful.”
