  • Lori Hudson, a fourth grade teacher at Phillip C. Showell Elementary School, was chosen to be the Indian River School District's 2013-14 Teacher of the Year. The announcement was made during an April 18 ceremony at Sussex Central High School. She was chosen from a pool of 15 candidates, one from each school in the district.
    Q: Why did you want to become a teacher?
    A: To experience lifelong success in students, watching them grow into adulthood. Also, in 1970, when I was less than two years old, my brother was born and labeled as "mentally handicapped." He had serious medical issues and passed away at the age of three.
    Q: What's your favorite part about your job?
    A: To see students learn to love school, be inspired and grow academically as well as socially.
    Q: You were selected for this honor by your colleagues. How does that make you feel?
    A: Absolutely humbled! The teachers of IRSD are the best of the best throughout the state. I feel that we should be honored every day for the hard work and dedication that is provided daily to the students of our communities.
    Q: Did you think you were going to win?
    A: Absolutely not. Each and every building teacher of the year demonstrates what we do on a daily basis. They are outstanding professionals and deserve recognition on a daily basis.
