Gloucester County Teacher of the Year -- Robyn Sole

Each year, we are able to forward one of the names of our Teachers of the Year to the County Office of Education for consideration in the selection process for Gloucester County Teacher of the Year.

Congratulations to Woodbury's Robyn Sole – Gloucester County Teacher of the Year! Dr. Mark Stanwood, Gloucester County Superintendent of Schools, informed us yesterday that Ms. Sole was selected to represent Gloucester County. The selection process now continues at the state level to choose the New Jersey Teacher of the Year. Ms. Sole is one of twenty-two finalists for that honor.

Ms. Sole is a mathematics teacher in the Woodbury Junior High School. She entered teaching after starting work in the world of business (Ms. Sole had been the Executive Director of the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House). She obtained certification by way of New Jersey’s Alternate Route process – a system started by the New Jersey Department of Education in 1984 that allows college graduates who did not follow the traditional teacher preparation program to enter the field of teaching. Today, Ms. Sole continues her own formal education and has been a very active member of the Rowan University South Jersey Math Partnership project.

Ms. Sole exemplifies what it means to be a passionate educator. We are proud that she is able to represent the many quality, passionate educators who work in the Woodbury Public Schools.

Again, congratulations to Robyn Sole!
