• Congratulations to Flatwoods Elementary special education teacher Jimmie Ann Daniels, selected as a monthly national winner in the Amazing Teacher Awards! This program is put on by the USA Today Network of publications, and sponsored locally by Shelton State Community College and The Tuscaloosa News.

    Ms. Daniels was nominated for the award by a grandmother of a student. “Her daily patience with all her students is enforced by her loving personality and kindness," the nomination letter said.

    "Her inspiring determination in helping each student meet their best potential touches my heart.”

    Ms. Daniels is pictured in the gallery above with her Flatwoods colleagues Amy Simmons, Mindy McIntosh, and Courtney Hayes.

    Congratulations to Ms. Daniels!
