Congratulations to Hoke County Schools’ 2014-2015 Teacher of the Year Veronica Sturdivant.  Veronica is completing her second year as a teacher at Hoke County High School where she is a certified math teacher.  Although she officially teaches math, her principal, Roger Edwards, says, “It is obvious when one walks in the room that Veronica teaches much more than math. She is all about providing opportunities for students to engage in the instruction and to take responsibility for their learning.”  

Veronica was born and raised in Morven, North Carolina.  She graduated from Anson High School in 2000.  In 2004, she graduated from UNC-Greensboro with honors and a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics.  After graduation, she returned home to teach at the high school, which she did for seven years.  Before coming to Hoke High, she taught at Montgomery County’s West Middle School for one year.  Veronica has dedicated 10 years of service to the career and life calling of being a teacher and she says she never forgets one important detail, “It doesn’t matter if I stand in front of a class of 20 or sit next to a student of one, the message I relay will always be the same.  It is my job as a teacher to relay the importance of math to every individual in my presence and the impact it will have on their life as a whole.”
