Corey Carter, a 6-year educator who teaches science at Old Court Middle School and co-founded the mentoring program in his building, is Baltimore County’s newest Teacher of the Year.
Baltimore County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. S. Dallas Dance named Carter Baltimore County Teacher of the Year during a ceremony this evening at George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology in Towson.
“Corey Carter sets a wonderful example of what teaching in Baltimore County looks like," Dr. Dance said. “He concentrates on the whole child and fosters relationships with each and every student who comes through his door. Not only that, but he gives students the tools and confidence they need to be in charge of their own learning, and places an emphasis on critical thinking."
