Congratulations to Zachariah Lowe for being named the Sumter School District Teacher of the Year!

Mr. Lowe, an eighth grade social studies teacher at Mayewood Middle, has three years of service education. The most rewarding part of his career in education has been having the opportunity to see his students grow in a variety of different areas. “Teaching is about much more than just social studies content; as teachers, we are able to mold and shape our youth to become success-oriented individuals, both intellectually and socially,” said Lowe. Seeing his students’ short- and long-term growth on a daily basis is the most encouraging aspect of his career, and Mr. Lowe has faith that our world will be led by the fine young men and women that he has had the opportunity to teach.
