Holmes CI Vocational Teacher Chosen Corrections Teacher of the Year
Vocational PC Support Services Teacher Gary Brown was named Florida Department of Corrections Teacher of the Year. Much of the success of the Holmes CI Vocational PC Support Program can be attributed to Brown, who has worked at Holmes CI since November 2007.
"Mr. Brown is an organized, disciplined team player who is willing to go out of his way to teach inmates and he's an excellent representative of our Department's instructors," said Holmes CI Warden John Whitfield.
At Holmes CI, Mr. Brown is a model teacher who demonstrates exceptional leadership qualities. As part of the Florida Department of Education Awards Program, each Teacher of the Year receives a monetary award and plaque. In addition, he will represent the Florida Department of Corrections at the Macy's/Florida Department of Education Teacher of the Year Awards Gala at Hard Rock Live in Orlando.
Thank you, Mr. Brown, for all the great work you are doing for your students!
