Ten Franklin County educators have been honored with gift cards and radio announcements in time for May’s “teacher appreciation week.”
The program is run by Emerson Insurance and Financial Services with WHAI and WPQV radio stations.
Among Franklin County’s 10 honorees is Lauren Paquin, a fourth-grade teacher at Buckland-Shelburne Elementary School. She has worked at the school for three years.
“I really liked working with kids, and reading and learning, and it just made sense,” Paquin said. While she admitted she was apprehensive about choosing a career that involved plenty of public speaking, she said fourth-graders have been a receptive audience.
