Watauga Elementary School | Teacher of the Year

A woman smiling.Watauga Elementary is thrilled to announce our Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Angela Owens! Mrs. Owens has taught in Washington County and exclusively at Watauga Elementary for nineteen years. Mrs. Owens graduated from Emory and Henry College in 1999 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Interdisciplinary English.

When asked what makes her teaching philosophy different from others Mrs. Owens replied, “I believe that fair is not everyone getting the same thing. Fair is everyone getting what they need to succeed. It is my job to make sure all students are treated fairly so they can achieve their maximum potential.” Mrs. Owens also believes that she was destined to become a teacher. She feels that caring and encouraging students is the best way to reach students and help them excel. Watauga is so proud of our Teacher of the Year!
