District Teacher of the Year Announcement

It is our honor to announce that Alice Burruss, first grade teacher at Ocracoke School, is the 2022-2023 Hyde County Schools District Teacher of the Year!

She has honed her craft as an assistant childcare director on Ocracoke, went back to school in 2010 to earn her K-6 teaching license, returned to Ocracoke as a pre-kindergarten teacher at Ocracoke School, and two and a half years later became the first grade teacher - a position she has thrived in for 10 years.

She believes in providing quality instruction for every student, personalizing and pacing that learning for each student, and encouraging pride in each students' accomplishments.

You will be hearing more about her in the coming year, but please join us in congratulating our colleague Alice Burruss as the 2022-2023 Hyde County Schools Teacher of the Year!
