Congratulations to Lauren Brooks, who was named this evening as the 2012 Wake County school system Teacher of the Year.
Brooks is a math teacher at Enloe High School. She teaches Honors Algebra students and also leads an Algebra remediation team to help students who are struggling.
“I teach because I love to see students learn,” Brooks said in a district press release. “I love having that light bulb moment with students where they just get it. It just opens a whole new world of understanding for them that they never had before.”
Brooks also serves on Enloe’s school improvement team, the Algebra professional learning team and the Positive Behavior Intervention Team. She’s also the coach of the varsity girls’ volleyball team.
