Making the Future Brighter for Many

Graduates of Northern Panhandle schools understand some truly excellent teachers work in our area. One of them has been recognized as the best in the state.

Jennifer Schwertfeger, who teaches science at Cameron High School, was named the state “Teacher of the Year” last week, by the West Virginia Department of Education.

Truly great teachers feel strongly about both the subjects they handle and about educating children. “Students, teachers and staff feel her passion,” Marshall County Schools Superintendent Shelby Haines said.

Good for Schwertfeger, then, and good luck to her in competition for national Teacher of the Year honors. Her dedication is making the future brighter for many young people.
