Adriane Brooks (pictured right) has been named the 2023 Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) Substitute Teacher of the Year.
According to nomination materials submitted by the staff at Lewistown Elementary School, Brooks is flexible and willing to help in any capacity. She creates a positive learning environment and is calm and caring with students.
“Lewistown is beyond grateful for the profound impact Ms. Brooks has had on our community,” said Lewistown Elementary Principal Belinda Fockler. “Students know they can count on a friendly smile and a positive learning environment when she substitutes. Adriane goes above and beyond daily duties with a big heart, flexible mindset, and willingness to chip in at a moment’s notice. She has certainly earned this honor, and we are proud to have her on our Lewistown team!”
The Board of Education of Frederick County honored Brooks at their meeting in June, awarding her the seventh annual FCPS Substitute Teacher of the Year award. She has been a substitute with the school system for six years.
