Washougal's Eric Johnson and Camas' Candy Michener are teachers of the year
Showing students success
Tuesday, May 28, 2013
They come from contrasting backgrounds and work in very different environments.
Candy Michener is a kindergarten teacher at Helen Baller Elementary School, and Eric Johnson is a language arts and Title I teacher at Jemtegaard Middle School who works with struggling students.
However, in one area they are very similar, and that is in their passion to help students become successful learners, and seeing the potential in each and every one.
Now, they share something else in common. Michener and Johnson were recently named teacher of the year for their respective school districts by the Camas-Washougal Chamber of Commerce.
They will be honored, along with the businesses of the year and citizen of the year, at the annual chamber banquet at The Fairgate Inn on Tuesday, June 4.
