Vignon wins General Education Teacher of the Year
On May 12, 2014, the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce hosted the annual Academy Awards. Teachers, principals, business partners, and community interest groups came together to celebrate the achievements of the 2013-2014 school year and recognize those schools that have made outstanding gains. Laura Vignon is an important part of the CMT Academy of Digital Design and Communication at McGavock High School. She was heavily involved in the accreditation of the academy and continues to serve as a certified demonstration school teacher. Because of her involvement, the 10th-grade teaching team implements two major project-based learning experiences annually, and she remains committed to creating a higher-level learning environmental by incorporating new and advanced technologies into her classroom instruction. In addition to her work within her academy, Vignon coordinates the AVID Mid-Atlantic Region using this model. Each Fall, you'll find her outside teaching the field commanders for the marching band, and in Spring, you will find her leading college tours for AVID students.
