Buncombe County Schools
In J.B. Halpin’s classroom, there’s only one way to be: your very best.
The Pisgah Elementary School fourth-grade teacher makes sure that no student spends the day sitting down. The children walk each other through math problems in class groups and on the interactive white board, and Halpin teaches them to give each other open, honest feedback. The classroom ethic centers around working hard and working smart.
“If you to have kids who are responsible, you have to put some responsibility on their shoulders,” Halpin said. “You have to give them tasks and put them in leadership roles. I spend a lot of time teaching them to be good citizens and to be good people. Because the world is difficult. You have to fight for what you get. Maybe someone has more talent than you, but it’s not OK to get out-worked.”
Mr. Halpin was selected as the Enka District Teacher of the Year AND the overall Buncombe County Schools 2019 Teacher of the Year!
