At the Tuesday, March 10, 2020 Berkeley County Board of Education Meeting, Mr. Jimmy Freeman was officially recognized as the Mount Holly Elementary Teacher of the Year. 

Mr. Freeman is a fourth grade teacher at Mount Holly Elementary and has been teaching for eight years.

As a 2020 Teacher of the Year, Mr. Freeman will join 46 other rockstar BCSD teachers as a member of the district’s Teacher Forum.

Mr. Freeman describes being selected to be the advocate for his school as "humbling."

"I am honored to know my peers feel as though I am the best representative of the school as we lead toward a more innovative time in schools," he said. "Innovation is more than technology, but allowing students' voices to be heard in a way that is clear and effective. Creating new processes for students to be successful should involve the students' way of thinking as well as having an innovative approach of dealing with problems requiring new solutions. Becoming an advocate of Mount Holly Elementary is very humbling. I cannot thank my team enough. It will always be a group effort."
