The Calhoun County School system has announced its Employee of the Month for the month of September and she is well known and loved throughout the community. Natasha Scott has been with the Calhoun County School system for 19 years. During her time in the school system, Scotts has played numerous roles including a high school math teacher at Ohatchee, a Principal at Ohatchee Elementary, and now she is currently the Coordinator for the Excel Virtual Academy.
The Excel Virtual Academy is a public school that was created to provide a high quality education with flexible and differentiated learning opportunities. The virtual program offers blended learning which combines online learning with face-to-face instruction. Emily Jones is an 11th-grader who attends the virtual academy and says Scott is a big part of the reason why she enjoys this new learning experience.
Scott tells TV24 that although this virtual academy is only in its first year, the feedback and impact it has made on students so far in very positive.
Scott also says that although she is thankful for the recognition, she knows that there is more work to be done in making sure Calhoun County students continue to come out successful.
