Teacher of the Year and Beginning Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to Diane Speights for being named by her peers as the 2021-2022 Teacher of the Year for SVMS. Mrs. Speights teaches 8th grade ELA, coaches Forensics, participates in many athletics events, mentors younger teachers, and participates in many other activities at SVMS. Mrs. Speights just completed Year 19 at our school. For the 2021-2022 school year, Jose Acosta was voted as Beginning Teacher of the Year. Mr. Acosta teaches 6th grade Science but will be moving to 8th grade for this coming school year. He coaches soccer and is a true asset to the school. How ironic that Mrs. Speights taught Mr. Acosta way back when!
