Mr. James Logan

Indian Land Middle school

Mr. Logan welcomed me into his classroom this year as a parent volunteer and I had the opportunity to witness his interactions with the students. Mr. Logan goes above and beyond to engage the students with interesting field trips that he personally arranges. He also gives the kids exposure to real world scenarios like opening a checking account. His motto is to give 110 percent and make our kids future productive citizens. This is quite a feat because Mr. Logan is a special education teacher in a self contained setting. Mr. Logan expects a lot out of his students despite the fact that others might not realize how capable all these students are. He calls them scholars and they are a wonderful group of kids. Mr. Logan deserves high praise for all his hard work. He truly cares about all his students and he is maximizing their potential everyday.

Cynthia Robinson

Erwin Elementary

Mrs. Robinson and Mrs. Parker were our daughter’s kindergarten teachers. Although our daughter was taller than the average child and reading above grade level, they made her feel special. They challenged her academically but also showered her with love. Cameryn is in second grade now but keeps the memory album they gave her on a special shelf next to her bed. At least once or twice a week she looks at those pictures and smiles. Mrs. Robinson and Mrs. Parker are amazing teachers who gave our little princess a great start.
